How to win new network partners!

How to win new network partners!

The association HOP e.V. – official project partner of the Nature Guide Network project in Germany – is developing a letter of intent, trying to win new network partners in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

The German federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern was the official partner of the International Tourism Fair (ITB) Berlin in 2018 – the Nature Guide Network project was presented here – and one year ago, the Peeneregion in the district of Vorpommern won the special prize in the Germany-wide competition “Sustainable Tourism Destinations” in the category “Nature Experience & Biodiversity “. Currently, the tourism strategy of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is being revised, whereby sustainable tourism offers are being taken more into focus.

The time is right for “more nature tourism” in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – not least, because for years various especially regional players from tourism / retail sector, nature conservation and regional development work to promote nature tourism along the Western Pomeranian coast. The Nature Guide Network project already benefits from existing contacts of all project partners with e.g. nature conservation authorities and tourism stakeholders in all partner countries. Nevertheless, the idea of an ​​independent education as a Nature Guide has to be further disseminated and discussed.

In addition to various official network meetings of all three partner nations (see also Facebook posts), individual interviews with representatives from retail, tourism and education are now being sought. They will be informed about the project and will have the possibility to sign a non-binding letter of intent. This includes various variants of the support of the Nature Guide Network project, first and foremost the future education as Nature Guide and a possible employment of a trained Nature Guide in their own company. The HOP e.V. has already held its first talks in the district of Vorpommern – the idea of ​​Nature Guides as important players in sustainable tourism is therefore continuing to grow.

The other partners in the Nature Guide Network project welcomed this initiative and are now considering adapting the letter of intent to their respective national needs in order to approach potential regional as well as transregional network partners.

Enclosed the German version of the letter of intent as a pdf.
