For over 40 years, Club Europe has taken young people on trips to explore and learn about the world. We want that world to be a beautiful and exciting place for young people to explore for the next 40 years and beyond. We are committed to embedding sustainable practices in our own operations as well as offering sustainable alternatives in the main areas of our supply chain: transport, accommodation, excursions, and community. By the end of this season, we hope to have engaged all our colleagues, schools, and suppliers in our efforts. As a responsible travel provider, we are working with ABTA’s sustainability team and Travelife for Tour Operators to increase sustainability in our product development, operations and marketing activities.
[Ancient Indian proverb]
Taking young people away on educational school trips both in the UK and beyond is at the heart of Club Europe’s business and it’s what we love doing. But we, and our young clients, are increasingly aware that tourism can also have a negative impact on host-destination environments, economies and communities. As a responsible travel provider, we are committed to sustainability in our development, operations and marketing.
(Margaret Mead, anthropologist).
We have just begun this journey and will keep you posted with our ideas, projects, successes and challenges along the way.
We are brimming with ideas: from refusing plastic bottles with your picnic lunches, discovering how our suppliers heat their buildings, working with our partner charities Snow-Camp and Keys of Change embracing better forms of travel, be it by train, off-setting the carbon or educational tours in the UK to feeding the birds outside the office, there are a myriad of ways to make a positive impact. We’re very excited about this new stage in Club Europe’s life!
