Come join us from September 2nd to 5th, 2024, for an unforgettable TransParcNet Meeting in Háldi Transboundary Area, hosted by Finland and Norway!

What is TransParcNet Meeting?

TransParcNet Meeting is the annual meeting of network of all certified EUROPARC Transboundary Parks. This meeting plays a vital role in promoting transboundary cooperation amongst European Protected Areas. By facilitating dialogue and collaboration between neighbouring parks, the event encourages the sharing of resources, expertise, and experiences to enhance conservation efforts and sustainable development in border regions.

About the event’s location

This year’s TransParcNet Meeting will take place in the stunning Háldi Transboundary Area, where Norway’s Reisa National Park and Ráisduottarháldi Protected Landscape Area meet Finland’s Käsivarsi Wilderness Area. Covering 3000 km² of untouched nature, this place is like nowhere else, with no towns or people, just pure wilderness where animals roam free and adventures await.

We will start the meeting by exploring the nuances of climate change impacts in the Fennoscandian High North through insightful discussions led by expert speakers. We will then delve into the realm of climate change adaptation tools and uncover the latest advancements in this field. Additionally, insights into EU policies supporting cross-border cooperation will be provided. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to address transboundary issues through their own short presentations, fostering dialogue and collaboration amongst attendees!
