The EUROPARC Conference is the event of the year for those working in Europe’s Protected Areas and Natura 2000 sites.

Due to the challenges arising from covid-19 this year’s EUROPARC conference will now be ONLINE!

International cooperation and connection is more important than ever, so we want to ensure we provide this opportunity to bring members together, albeit virtually!

Our new future: How ready are you?

EUROPARC CONFERENCE 2020, will be an innovative 2 day ONLINE event on the 8th AND 9th of September. After we have looked at the value of nature across multiple sectors of society at EUROPARC Conference 2019, in 2020 we will look to the future… We will be exploring, what skills and capacities protected areas need, to implement the 2030 biodiversity strategy, in the post COVID-19 world. We will bring you an interactive online experience, to connect with colleagues from across Europe and bring you the best of EUROPARC networking, in these challenging times.

DETAILS and registration will be available at the beginning of JUNE: So SAVE THE DATE!

The conference originally scheduled for  27-30th October, Neusiedler See – Seewinkel National Park Austria, will now take place in MAY 2022.  We will gather then, to consider Communicating in the 21st Century? Question your mind set! Perhaps even more important as we will have absorbed the implication of a post-COVID world, and indeed will be in year one of what will be by then the new EUROPARC strategy.

The EUROPARC conference in May 2022 in Austria, will also incorporate the Transparcnet meeting so will have an emphasis on transboundary cooperation and communications.

This year’s General  Assembly of 2020 will also be ONLINE and will take place at the originally scheduled date of 27th October. More details will follow.
