European Day of Parks 2023

European Day of Parks 2023: Building on our roots

Thanks to the support of our members and partners on the ground, the European Day of Parks was once again a big success! The European day of Parks (EDoP) aims at bringing people closer to Nature by offering a diversity of activities and events in Protected Areas across the EUROPARC Network. The events that were organised addressed people of all ages: children, youngsters, young adults, families and seniors. This year, we focussed on “Building on our Roots”. The theme was chosen to highlight how we all have the responsibility of protecting, and expanding our natural heritage. A fitting topic, as we celebrate EUROPARC’s 50th Anniversary in 2023.

This year, it was a joy to see so many events take place once again throughout Europe! Our network led its creativity flow and over 150 events were organised and registered on our website, with many more taking place on the ground.

There was quite a buzz on social and traditional media as well, providing a great multiplier effect. Once again, the European Day of Parks put Europe’s Protected Areas in the spotlight they deserve! To get an overview of all that was happening in the media, have a look at our Media and Activity report:
