A new EUROPARC Strategy 2022
Our strategy is the mechanism through which we operate. As the current EUROPARC strategy is coming to and end, in 2020 the process of creating a new strategy was started. Now, we are looking for feedback from our members.
The strategy helps us focus our efforts on the areas of work most important to our members. To create the new strategy, in 2020 multiple meetings were held with section members and representatives, as well as a questionnaire amongst our membership. This consultation resulted in the first draft of the new EUROPARC Strategy. We want to thank all our members that contributed.
We have collated and analysed all your inputs and present to you now the DRAFT strategy. We welcome your thought and comment on this, in order for a final version to be presented at the online General Assembly for approval.
There is a small questionnaire which we encourage members to complete, obviously you need to do this alongside the strategy document itself. You can access the survey here.
But of course you are free to make any other inputs and comment you wish to. Send these to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feedback can be provided until 22nd of July. We will vote on the new strategy during our online General Assembly. This will take place on the 5th of October at 09:00 AM. Changes in the regulations related to our association now permit online voting. This year is extra special, as our members can also vote for a new Council and President, so do not forget to nominate your candidates!
We look forward to hearing your feedback.
