The 53rd ERA conference was held from 29 Sept. to 2 October 2022 in the Konventum – conference centre in Helsingør, Denmark. 63 delegates from 24 countries attended the well prepared event. A big Thank You goes to the organizing Dansk Vandrelaug. The minutes of the 53rd General Meeting and the summary of the Know-How sessions are available on the ERA website.

LQT-BE awards

The LQT-BE products (developed in cooperation with Deutscher Wanderverband Sevice GmbH - DWS) were increased by adding the LQT-BE Day Walk and LQT-BE Region, both powered by ERA. Those two new pilot projects have come to an end this year and the first awards, from all the hard work, were handed over.

The LQT-BE Region Éislek (LUX) was certified in June 2022 and two months later awarded in its organisation by the DWS (during the fair “Caravan Salon” in Düsseldorf). ERA will award the certificate to the Region Éislek in the coming period.

The LQT-BE Day Walk’s pilot project created two new certificates for Guttland.Trails: Siwe Brécke-Wee and Fuussepad. Both of them were awarded at the ERA conference in Helsingør.
Congratulations to all!
