Based in Brussels, our EUROPARC Policy Office ensures direct connection with European Institutions, including European Commission, European Parliament, the Council of Europe and the Committee of the Regions.
EUROPARC dialogues also with the Council of Europe based in Strasbourg.
The Brussels Office operates in cooperation and coordination with a large number of organisations, NGOs, and networks based in Brussels.
How we work
To achieve our policy priorities and to contribute effectively to the development and implementation of EU policies, EUROPARC conducts regular meetings with national and regional authorities, engages in dialogue with other international organisations in Brussels and represents its members in various events, fori and Expert Groups. We also organise specific events, among them the Seminar-Dialogues with the European Commission on Protected Areas and EU policies, and the annual Award Ceremony of the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas, realised in collaboration with the European Parliament.
Our Brussels Office
The team in Brussels is composed by the Policy Officer and one Assistant. Together with the Director and all Directorate staff, and with the President and the Council, they carry on the EUROPARC advocacy.
The IUCN EU representative office is not only an important partner itself, but also hosts the EUROPARC Brussels office providing further valuable opportunities for networking and knowledge exchange.
