Over the years, the Federation has supported the creation of eight regional and national sections. The sections fulfil many of the EUROPARC Federations’ aims, whilst reflecting the priorities and characteristics of the areas they cover. They undertake a huge volume of work to a high professional standard and both support and stimulate the work of the Federation as a whole.
The adoption of a new strategy provides an opportunity to change the structure of the organisation, in response to the members’ wish for more effective governance structures (Council, General Assembly and Directorate) and for more clear roles and responsibilities especially for sections.
