TransParcNet meeting 2015

Bavarian Forest and Šumava National Parks (DE/CZ)

The 7th TransParcNet meeting took place from 9th to 12th June 2015 in the National Parks Bavarian Forest (DE) and Šumava (CZ).

Experts in cross-border cooperation in Protected Areas came together to share good practices in transboundary cooperation, discover cross-border partnerships in other parks and look into common project ideas.

This year’s meeting will looked at “The value of healthy ecosystems for nature and people” from a transboundary perspective. We studied practical examples of raised bog restoration as well as the natural dynamic of ecosystems and their effects on biodiversity. We enjoyed views on the area from mountain tops and tree top walks, learning about the value of visitor management in order for everybody to benefit from the natural landscape.

A full report on the meeting will follow shortly. In the meantime, find below the presentations given at the meeting for you to download.
