About Club Med - Press Room
In 1950 two pioneering spirits invented a new All-Inclusive holiday concept. They dreamt of providing idyllic surroundings where people could get away from it all and relax, discover new sports, the wonders of nature and make new friends. A new definition of luxury ! And they called it Club Méditerranée.
The Club Méditerranée Foundation, established in 1978, supports the cause of children and helps fight illness and disease. With the personal commitment of its chairman, Henri Giscard d’Estaing, some 3,000 GOs and GEs give up their time and contribute their energies, helping local causes close to their workplace.
To ensure development is sustainable, we need to respond to two of the major challenges of our era: the pressure on the planet, and the tension between communities. Club Méditerranée plays an active role, constantly seeking to manage to the highest standards the impact of its activity in these two areas.
