The Ministry of the Environment headed by Minister Richard Brabec (ANO 2011) has approved – against the will of Šumava’s local authorities – a new Management Plan that will harm Šumava’s nature for many decades or even centuries, imperil protected and endangered species, endanger the hydrological function of Šumava’s nature and landscape, and irreversibly impair the traditional landscape character of Šumava, as it does not respect the cultural heritage of Šumava’s ancestors.

This Management Plan will result in Šumava becoming half dry and half cut-out. This will be done in the name of alleged “wilderness” as envisioned by political businessmen and timber industry lobby in the background, and eco-fundamentalists and Euro-bureaucracy in the foreground. After 1989, we are facing again the situation when the state executive refuses to respect local communities’ wishes, rights and duties of local authorities as well as the wishes of a large share of our country’s public and instead, it gives the future of one of the Czech Republic’s most precious territories into the hands of narrowly specialized scientific and activist experimenters who represent a minority group in the Czech academic area and who are supported by activist groups.

Concerns about Šumava nature’s future, concerns about Šumava’s forests as irreplaceable elements of the landscape with environmental impacts largely exceeding the area of the National Park as well as concerns about elementary democratic principles have inspired the idea to form the ŠUMAVA CHARTER to be presented to general public. The ŠUMAVA CHARTER does not want the Šumava region to end up dry or cut-out. It does not want Šumava forests to become places where politically motivated logging is carried out and where political business is made at the expenses of nature and local population. The ŠUMAVA CHARTER wants Šumava forests full of biological diversity, local inhabitants living happy lives and happy visitors of the National Park.

The ŠUMAVA CHARTER is an independent, informal and open community of people with various views, beliefs and occupations, who share the intention to strive, both together and individually, for the following goals:

  • To retrieve the existing situation and improve the conditions of Šumava’s nature in all its natural, environmental, social and economic functions;
  • to retrieve and restore Šumava’s typical landscape character, as seen, among others, in its cultural character and a number of preserved natural phenomena;
  • to provide preconditions for adequate and good-quality living for local inhabitants in harmony with local natural conditions;
  • to bring a halt to irresponsible experimenting with Šumava’s environment that currently only takes a limited view of biological sciences regardless of standard findings of other sciences;
  • to put an end to plundering of Šumava forests that takes place by way of artificial bark-beetle calamities resulting in drastic filling of affected trees;
  • to protect the water regime of the Šumava landscape;
  • to promote high-quality and relevant protection policy instead of ideological and politicized approach;
  • to protect Šumava by means of a specific act that will establish clear and long-term rules;
  • to promote the accessibility of Šumava’s natural wonders for all visitors who are interested in visiting them.

The ŠUMAVA CHARTER is not an organisation, has no statutes, permanent bodies or specifically defined membership. It can be joined by anybody who agrees with the above mentioned ideas and supports them.

The ŠUMAVA CHARTER is not a base for political activity and engagement. In terms of the Šumava National Park and related questions, it intends to enter into constructive dialogues with political and state power. It aims to serve the common good.

We believe that the ŠUMAVA CHARTER will contribute to restoration of natural, cultural and social conditions in Šumava as well as renewal of Šumava’s excellent reputation.

As signatories of this declaration, we entrust Jan Stráský, Ladislav Havel and Antonín Schubert to become the primary spokesmen of the ŠUMAVA CHARTER. These spokesmen are authorised to represent it in communication with the state, municipal and political institutions as well as with Czech and international public.
