EUROPARC working for a better recognition of the role of Parks in Europe

Parks, with their long history, integrated governance systems, wide expertise, passion and dedication are fundamental to ensure the effective management of Natura 2000 sites. EUROPARC Federation has been working in Brussels to enhance the recognition of Parks among the EU Institutions, and highlight their fundamental role for safeguarding Europe’s habitats and biodiversity. Indeed, conservation objectives will be hardly achieved without proper management and the involvement of stakeholders.

Yesterday, Federico Minozzi, EUROPARC Managing Director along with Giampiero Sammuri, President of Federparchi-EUROPARC Italy, and Enzo Lavarra, President of the Dune Costiere Regional park and former MEP, had a productive meeting in Brussels with the DG Environment – Cabinet of the EC Commissioner Vella.  EUROPARC and Federparchi-EUROPARC Italy will work to collect some evidence and case studies and introduce the European Commission concrete results from our member network, on the management of Natura 2000.
