 Since 2008, the French National Parks and the insurance company GMF are working together on a program to adapt the accessibility of the French national parks and taking into account the four different groups of disabled persons: physically, mental or visually handicapped and deaf-and-dump persons.

This ambitious program today includes 9 French National Parks:

  • Modification of information centers and their entries and recreation areas
  • Adaptation of some paths, view - and observation points
  • Development of educational strategies for environmental education, to explore the area on certain routes

A video report, 10 minutes long, shows you different implementation measures and facilities in French national parks:

Take a look at the video report!

The video is only available in French. Nevertheless, as demonstrated by the images, the video shows interesting opportunities for accessibility.
