This year, continuing on from the launch of the YOUTH MANIFESTO, we will focus, in this 2 day seminar,  on working with youth. We will explore the new programme created by EUROPARC the Youth + programme and how this can be a model for working with 18-25year old in your park.

We will also hear from other youth programmes to gain new perspectives and ideas that will help you build a programme in your area. You will be welcome to bring your own ideas for a collective “surgery” where we can examine problems and challenges you may have and suggest solutions together.

The seminar is FREE to EUROPARC members (includes meals and accommodation), you need only cover your travel costs to Siggen.

By early 2019 the full programme will be launched.

Registrations are now closed!
