After a longer break due to the Corona pandemic, we are happy to report that we are reviving the “Fair Family seal of quality.” With the seal, we distinguish family-friendly companies, public institutions, and private initiatives that are particularly committed to families with many children and that try to support large families in one way or the other.
The awarding of our “Fair Family seal of quality” is based on the following criteria:
- particularly family-friendly employer with innovative ideas for supporting families or
- family-friendly products and offers or
- family-friendly projects or representation of interests as a social commitment
On 12 April 2022, we will carry out the first award after a two-year break. On the occasion of a holiday camp, the Schmidt wildlife park in Nideggen in the Eifel nountains was awarded the seal of quality for particularly family-friendly products and offers, in particular for staggered entrance fees to the park.
We also take this as an opportunity to focus on one of our most important concerns: We are committed to “real” family cards (German: Mehrkindfamilienkarten) and the associated appreciation of large families! We want to show that family cards must also apply to larger families and go beyond the most prevalent family model of two adults and two children.
