Conference – National Parks in Czech Republic 2016
The purpose of the conference was to present and discuss the current state and future of national parks in Czech Republic, including the international context. So far, the four Czech Republic National Parks are all collaborating with their neighbouring Parks across the border, in the framework of the EUROPARC Transboundary Parks Programme – Following Nature’s Design.
Conference: National Parks in Czech Republic
What is the current status of National Park? What are the key challenges and goals? Is the current system of national parks representative enough?
To discuss these questions, several experts were invited to share their perspectives and all presentations are now available in this link. We recommend you to give a closer look to the some presentations that were held in English:
The IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas, made by Andrej Sovinc from the WPCA
The Importance of National Parks in Germany, made by Karl Sinner from EUROPARC Germany
The Swiss National Park – Current state, the past and the future, by Ruedi Haller from the Swiss National Park
The Conference was organised by the Ministry of Environment, the administrations of the Czech National Parks, the Faculty of Environment of the Czech Agriculture University (CAU) and Silva Tarouca Research Institute. The EUROPARC Central and Eastern Europe Section was one of the partners involved in the organisation.
