Activities & Events 2013
In the light of EUROPARC Federation´s 40th anniversary in 2013, we celebrate the pan-European network founded in 1973 throughout the year under the theme "40 years Working for Nature". The motto of the European Day of Parks 2013 is My Park. My Passion. My Story. which creates space for individuals and protected area organizations to join the celebration and share their "story" with the EUROPARC network.
This years European Day of Parks invited everybody who loves to be out in nature to share her/his story:
We invite people who work in protected areas as well as those who visit them to reflect on the beauty of nature and share their passion, feelings and emotions in a story, a song, a picture, a film, any piece of art that expresses how you feel connected to your most favourite Protected Area. The European Day of Parks 2013 is for people of all ages: children, youngsters, young adults, adults and seniors. Any one can contribute her/his own idea and passion experienced in nature.
All protected areas, Natura 2000 sites, EUROPARC members and partners are always invited to join the European Day of Parks activites - and make this day an unforgettable event!
Please find here some activities of protected areas for the European Day of Parks 2013: MyPark. My Passion. My Story.
