Seminar Dialogue 2022 – Partnerships for Biodiversity

Published on:

Every year, the EUROPARC Federation, in cooperation with DG ENV organises the Seminar Dialogue. A one-day event in Brussels organised just for EUROPARC members.

Provisional information

Since its successful launch in 2017, the Seminar-Dialogue provides EUROPARC members with a chance to sit with the European Commission to share their experience and needs for the effective management of Natura 2000 areas. We are therefore pleased to invite you to this year’s edition:

The event is organised in cooperation with DG ENV, with DG CLIMA also participating. It is only open to EUROPARC members. Registration closes Thursday 10th of November.

By bringing together representatives of the European Commission and Protected Area professionals, EUROPARC wants to highlight the contribution of Protected Areas to the achievement of the European policy goals, whilst giving the European Commission a clear insight into the challenges faced by professionals in the field. After two years online, the Seminar Dialogue 2022 will be in presence again.

The Seminar will count with interventions from EUROPARC members and from the different DGs, who will share the latest policy updates and funding opportunities. EUROPARC and the European Commission DG Environment have set up a programme focused on the following key areas:

  • The new Restoration law: the role of, and the impact on, Protected Areas
  • Nature Conservation in the Climate change context

The event is for EUROPARC members only. Places are limited, but we look forward to welcoming as many members as possible to Brussels. Participation is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. Register here.

The event will be anticipated by an internal networking meeting only for EUROPARC members, on 8th of November between 16:00 and 18:00 at the EUROPARC Federation Brussels Office.
