Save the date! EUROPARC Conference 2021 goes to the Netherlands

Published on:

The EUROPARC Conference is the event of the year for those working in Europe’s Protected Areas and Natura 2000 sites. Next year, EUROPARC Conference will take place from 4 to 8 October 2021 in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. Save the date!

“Tribute to our landscape – Where nature and people meet in harmony”

In 2021, if the situation permits, we hope to once again meet face to face for the EUROPARC Conference. Hosted by The Dutch National Parks and partners, the EUROPARC Conference 2021 will take place in Leeuwarden, in the north of The Netherlands on the 4th till 8th of October 2021!

The theme of the conference is ‘Tribute to our landscape’ – where nature and people meet in harmony.

Our Landscapes, are part of the most valuable cultural treasures of  the European society. It is where nature and people meet and interact in the past, present and in future.

Unfortunately, not always in harmony. We all realize societies in harmony with nature are crucial for present and future generations. The coronavirus pandemic has emphasized that more than ever. Finding harmony in the  long run is the challenge. How can we act to meet this challenge, related to nature, human development, and sustainable economy?


The programme will offer inspiring keynote speakers, interactive workshops and a great variety of field trips to Dutch National Parks and the amazing landscape of the Waddensea, a UNESCO World Heritage site. In addition, we surely plan time for networking, meeting  old and new friends, and to discuss experiences. All National Parks and partners are invited to present their activities at the marketplace.
