Welcome, Bienvenue, Willkommen!
EUROPARC Federation currently represents some 400 members. These include protected areas, governmental departments, NGO's and businesses in 35 countries, who themselves manage the green jewels of Europe's land, sea, mountains, forests, rivers and cultural heritage. Nature knows no boundaries and we therefore facilitate international co-operation in all aspects of protected area management to further and improve and conserve our shared natural inheritance. We endeavour to exchange expertise, experience and best practise as well as to collaborate with others to ensure the value and meaning of protected areas is at the heart of Europe.

Happy International Volunteer Day!
Today we celebrate and recognize globally volunteerism in all its facets and pay special tribute to all people that act as the agents of change in their communities. This day is an international observance designated by the United Nations since 1985 and it offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make visible their contributions - at local, national and international levels.
EUROPARC is also proud to celebrate the achievements of the EU-GRUNDTVIG Multilateral Project “Volunteer Management in European Parks” that has just come to it end after three years of successful international collaboration for the benefit of volunteering and Protected Areas across Europe. Financed by a grant of the European Union within the Programme of Lifelong Learning/GRUNDTVIG, the consortium – consisting of European, national and regional networks of Protected Areas, as well as individual parks across 8 countries – is proud to celebrate today the project achievements and its legacy for the benefit of volunteering and Protected Areas in Europe.
EUROPARC and all of the GRUNDTVIG Partners will in this occasion mark the day will provide a summary of its activities and experiences of the 3 year project. Read more about the project here.
