    Abstract

    Despite the expressed willingness to reduce its impact on the environment, The tourism industry is one of the
    main threats to 50% of the world's 252 natural world heritage sites. As Europe is the most visited destination in the world
    and given the intensifying pressure on protected natural areas, this article seeks to define how to improve pro-environmental
    behaviours in natural protected areas by stakeholders in Europe. For that purpose, this paper aims to address how European
    policies influence stakeholders' motivation to implement these strategies and their pro-environmental behaviours. This
    paper highlights that the main tools for implementing sustainable development policies in protected natural areas are
    information, knowledge, norms, and values. This paper reports part of the early stages of a PhD research, and the results
    reported are therefore theoretical and point to a knowledge gap. These are expected to inform the empirical part of the PhD
    research, to be conducted during the second year of the PhD, and therefore not reported in this paper
