The voice of nature will be heard at the highest level in the European Commission: the EUROPARC Federation invites members to join the second Seminar-Dialogue, organised in close cooperation with the DG Environment (DG ENVI) and with the participation of DG Agriculture (DG AGRI) and DG Education and Culture (DG EAC). 

Seminar-dialogue with the European Commission 2018

Partnerships for biodiversity: European policies and the role of Protected Areas

  • 7th December 2018
  • 09:00 – 16:30
  • DG Environment, Avenue de Beaulieu 5, 1160 Brussels

On the 7th December, EUROPARC members will have the chance to sit with the European Commission to share their experience and needs for the effective management of Natura 2000. By bringing together representatives of the DG ENVI, DG AGRI and DG EAC and protected area professionals,

EUROPARC aims to highlight the contribution of Protected Areas to the achievement of the European policy goals, whilst giving the European Commission a clear insight of the challenges faced by professionals in the field.

The Seminar will count with interventions from EUROPARC members and from the different DGs, who will share the latest policy updates and funding opportunities. Following the successful Seminar-Dialogue organised last year, EUROPARC and DG Environment have set up a programme focused on four key areas:

  • Managing Natura 2000: funding, opportunities and challenges
  • Building partnerships for Sustainable Agriculture
  • Nature and Culture: Protected Areas connecting people to their heritage and identity
  • Youth involvement: the EUROPARC Youth Manifesto

The event will be anticipated by an internal meeting only for EUROPARC members, on Thursday 06.12.2018 between 15:00 and 18:00 at the EUROPARC Federation Brussels Office.
