Seminar-dialogue with the European Commission 2018
Partnerships for biodiversity: European policies and the role of Protected Areas
On the 7th of December, 30 participants including protected areas representative, managers, and experts, and several officers from the European Commission DG Environment (ENVI) and DG for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (EAC), attended the Seminar-Dialogue 2018. The initiative, organised for the second time by the EUROPARC Federation and DG ENVI, proves to be a great success in sparking the dialogue about European policies and how they are being implemented in by protected areas and Natura 2000 sites.
Every year, EUROPARC invites members of the network to showcase their achievements in the European Commission – DG ENVI. In 2018, we looked at Natura 2000 management, agriculture in protected areas, youth, and the connection between culture and nature, through the presentation of several case studies done by EUROPARC members, and policy updates shared by officers of different European institutions.
It has been also the occasion to present the EUROPARC Youth Manifesto to the Mr. Humberto Delgado Rosa, Director of the Natural Capital in DG ENVI and to Alessandro Senesi, Deputy Head of Unit, Dir. B Youth, Education and Erasmus+, DG EAC (Education and Culture).
