Register now to the EUROPARC Conference 2023!

Our network will meet in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands from 3 – 6 October. Register now to the EUROPARC Conference 2023!

Tribute to our landscape – where nature and people meet in harmony

Our landscapes are the places where people meet, in the past, present and future. In the face of our different challenges, like biodiversity loss and climate change, the decisions we make now will decide if we have a future in harmony with nature.

So, what is needed to create this harmony? What are the lessons learned from our past? How can we change our behaviour and act on regional, national and European level to find this harmony? These are the questions that will guide us throughout the Conference.

Register now!

In 2024, whilst there will be an innovative online alternative, there will not be a face to face EUROPARC Conference. All the more reason to come together this year!

Learning from 50 years of EUROPARC

2023 marks EUROPARC’s 50th anniversary. As such, our Conference will provide participants with loads of opportunities to celebrate. The celebration of 50 years of EUROPARC Federation will form an important element in the programme.

Our 50 years of experience in handling issues and finding solutions can be of great value, if we are capable of linking them to the challenges of tomorrow.

We hope to see many friends, old and new, gather in Leeuwarden, to celebrate this milestone with us. This Conference will bring together the best of EUROPARC, from networking to knowledge exchange: Let’s together learn from the past to prepare for the future. Check out the exciting programme that awaits here:
