See the sky, touch a tree, feel the air and find yourself!
The celebration theme of 2012 encouraged the people across Europe to get a unique and individual experience in one of Europe’s Natural Parks: Parks as living health spas for stressed fatigued Europeans, that was the idea promoted under the theme See the sky, touch a tree, feel the air and find yourself! More than 140 events in 21 places from the West to the East of Europe reminded of the great free resources our Protected Areas consist of.
This year´s motto was simple and individualistic, intending to inspire people to enjoy and appreciate the natural treasures in their own country and all over Europe. With some 150 events registered from 21 countries, this year´s European Day of Parks 2012 was another successful event! The 84 participating parks had a great media response, as had the EUROPARC Federation social media sites on Facebook and Twitter. The weekly reach of 6033 likes/comments/replies/mentions and many new followers prove the importance of social media.
