Strategy for Switzerland: Bringing Partners together
The Swiss Association to promote Nature and Historic Parks aims to:
Bring together the local people with the national government and the conservationists.
Combine protected and partly protected landscapes, historic sites and trails into a national concept. This allows Switzerland to position all major attractions as one unit.
We do not need new restictions - The cultural landscapes are already protected, and shall stay that way. We promote:
Harmony between tourists, local people and the natural, cultural landscape.
Constructive dialog between opposite aims of tourism promoters, local people and conservationists.
Protection of nature and heritage through better control of its usage.
Government and conservationist Organisations to take an active role in overseeing our protected Cultural Landscapes and Monuments.
Our Way to Realization:
The national Government, Kantons and local Communities together with the conservationist Organisations determine which exceptional Landscapes, historic Sites or Recreational Areas have the potential to become a "National Park". A government agency shall be created according to an international model to manage the parks. The consessions and events shall be organised through varies Organisations.
The Swiss Association to promote Nature and Historic Parks works together with the Institutes of the federal and local governments. She works with the local and regional organisations to create in each potential region a local chapter to promote "a new National Park". Each Park has to qualify according to the international standarts set by "IUCN", "UNESCO World Heritage" and the "US National Park Service". We will control which products and Services are allowed to use the Swiss labels.
