Puur Terschelling presents its sustainable business concept

How do entrepreneurs in our regions live in and with a protected nature area? How do they integrate nature into their business concept? Prowad Link wanted to know and set out to provide a voice and platform in the frame of an inspiring video series “Prowad Link asks. SMEs answer.”

Located on the Dutch Wadden Sea island of Terschelling, Puur Terschelling lives sustainable transportation by offering horse carriage tours as well as horseback riding and mudflat walks. The small family company also runs a camping site. In the video, the junior entrepreneur Jochem Bierema takes a tour through the different sustainable offers.

The video is part of a series on small and medium-sized enterprises that show their sustainable business practices in midst of a pandemic in the project’s pilot regions Wadden Sea World Heritage, the English Wash/ North Norfolk Coast and the West Norwegian Fjords World Heritage. Next to the video series the project partners have also released a living document on introducing cases of sustainable businesses, which is available on the project’s website and will be extended at regular intervals.

The video was filmed in the framework of Interreg project PROWAD LINK. Linking sustainable growth with nature protection – this is the objective 14 partners from Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom set out to do, when the 3-year Interreg project PROWAD LINK kicked off in 2018.
