Natura 2000 Twinning Workshop

Eurosite - Twinning Workshop, Biogeographical Process 2016

Published on:

On the 30 November and 1st December, Eurosite is leading the Twinning Workshop, to help design twinning as a tool for sharing good practice in Natura 2000 site management.

The workshop will take place in Rotterdam (The Netherlands), is part of the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process and is organised by Eurosite and its member organisation Natuurmonumenten.

Twinning is a structured collaboration between people from two natural sites allowing synergies, joint working and learning for the benefit of Europe’s nature. Natura 2000 site managers and the European Commission see an important role for twinning to improve site management practices, however a structure behind the concept is required.

During this twinning workshop, participants will design the (new) Natura 2000 Twinning Framework, taking forward the experiences from Eurosite and other existing twinning programs. This Framework will capture the outcomes and lessons learned from cooperation between Natura 2000 sites and also make them accessible to the wider site management community. By contributing to this workshop, you can make sure that the Natura 2000 Twinning Framework addresses your needs.
