Ignace Schops and Al Gore at the last Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in Berlin, 2018

Our President Ignace Schops was asked in the closing panel and as a mentor of the last Climate Reality Leadership Corps training a few weeks ago in Berlin, where over 750 people were trained. At these trainings, individuals get ready to make a difference in our planet’s future and spend three days working with former Vice President Al Gore and world-renowned scientists and communicators learning about the climate crisis and how together we can solve it.

Our planet earth is experiencing a dramatic change due to human activity. In the final panel, our President focused on the relation between climate change and biodiversity loss and emphasized how protected areas help to temper global warming.

Protecting and recovering more natural ecosystems is maybe one of the cheapest solutions to tackle climate change.

With his members and sections, the EUROPARC Federation takes responsibility and is investing a lot of time on the topic of climate change.
