Webinars by EUROPARC Atlantic Isles

EUROPARC Atlantic Isles Section is offering two exciting webinars!

In early October, a second webinar will focus on Peat restoration.

The webinars last about 1 hour. Participation is free but as places are limited you should register as soon as possible! EUROPARC Atlantic Isles webinars are a great opportunity to exchange information and expertise, in an easily accessible format. See below all the information and if you would like to suggest a theme for a webinar, please contact Anita Prosser at anita.prosser @

The Green Halo Partnership

  • Wednesday 8th August at 13.00 (Central Europe Summer Time)
  • Register here

This webinar will look at how the New Forest National Park has developed an innovative programme encouraging public, private and third sector organisations to recognise the economic and social value of the natural environment – its natural capital and the ecosystem services it provides in the New Forest National Park.

Two studies have helped to map and value the ecosystem services associated with the New Forest National Park. These reports highlighted the importance of theNational Park as a hotspot for ecosystem services – the challenge is to work out how the broad range of benefits flowing in and out of the National Park can shape the future of communities in and around the New Forest; enhancing the quality of life of those communities, providing a framework for the development of the local economy and strengthening the resilience of the unique landscape of the National Park itself by working beyond its boundaries, into a ‘Green Halo’.
