Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The purpose of ENAT is to promote the development of accessible tourism as a means of promoting greater social inclusion, at an international level.

The purpose of association is to coordinate the actions which support the tourist activities of its members; to keep them informed of any subject concerning accessible tourism in its technical, economic, social, legal and cultural aspects; and to disseminate to the wider community information concerning accessible tourism.

ENAT began in 2006 as a project, supported by the European Commission. In 2008 it was registered in Belgium as a non-profit association with a Board of 11 international Directors.

We aim to help make European tourism destinations, products and services accessible to all. We bring together all actors and stakeholders in the tourism sector – private, public and NGOs – to share experiences, learn from each other and collaborate in joint projects and partnerships.

We support tourism enterprises and public organisations by encouraging the development and spread of good policies and practices. We raise awareness, carry out research and provide expertise on accessibility issues for the tourism sector.

We are a platform for all those who support accessibility in tourism, and a strong representative voice in Europe towards national institutions and organisations whose actions have a direct influence on the tourism sector.

ENAT has National Contact Points in most of the EU Member States as well as in Jordan (MENA Regional Office) and Libya.

ENAT started as a European Network, but we welcome members from all over the world to share in our activities and collaborate with our European members.

In 2011 ENAT signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the UN World Tourism Organisation and the Spanish Fundación ONCE to develop projects and initiaves which will support accessible tourism worldwide.

We have our sights clearly set on the path ahead and on the ultimate destination: accessible tourism for all.
