European Day of Parks 2011

Volunteering – Nature Needs You

Celebrating the European Year of Volunteers, the 2011 events of European Day of Parks took the opportunity to promote the great work millions of volunteers do in Protected Areas around Europe every year: ‘Volunteering—Nature Needs You’, ‘Volontariat – La nature a besoin de vous’, ‘Freiwillige vor – die Natur braucht Sie’. Nature protection is one of the societal sectors that profits most from volunteering. The European Day of Parks promoted the work of volunteers with more than 500 events in 185 Protected Areas in 17 countries
