ENAT, European Network for Accessible Tourism
ENAT was registered with the office of the Commercial Court of Brussels on 8 May 2008 as the European Network for Accessible Tourism asbl. (non-profit association). It grew from a project-based initiative of nine sponsoring organisations in six EU Member States., funded by the European Commission, DG Employment and Social Affairs, from 2006 to 2007. ENAT is managed by an international Board of Directors, drawn from ENAT's founding partners and other leading organisations in accessible tourism. The Annual General Assembly, made up of all paid-up Full Members, is the governing body of the association. ENAT aims to make European tourism destinations, products and services accessible to all travellers and to promote accessible tourism around the world. It brings together sector actors to share their experience, learn from each other and collaborate in national and international projects and programs.
