The EUROPARC Conference is the event of the year for those working in Europe’s Protected Areas and Natura 2000 sites. From 3 – 6 October 2023, we will meet in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.

Our landscapes are part of the most valuable natural, social and cultural treasures of European society. Landscapes are where nature and people meet and interact in the past, present, and future. During the conference, we will celebrate the beauty and diversity of the versatile European natural and cultural landscapes: we recognise the impact of humans on the landscape and will also discuss the dis-harmony that exists.

During this conference, we will share information, knowledge and experiences to inspire each other. Young people, their views, ideas and opinions are an integral part of EUROPARC Conference 2023. That is why there is a special Youth Fee, as well as additional financial support offered by EUROPARC, thanks to the generous support of the Alfred Toepfer Stiftung.

Finding long-term harmony is the challenge.

Our aim is to ensure that all participants leave the conference feeling informed, educated and inspired: above all, we want participants to feel that the conference has been fun and good for their networking. Following the conference, we will encourage participants to take actions to improve the harmony between nature and people.

Youth Inclusive

We can’t talk about the future, without the future. A special “Youth Core Team” will ensure that there are different ‘young’ elements throughout the Conference. Furthermore, thanks to special offers for youth, we will ensure loads of young people will be able to participate.

Let’s celebrate!

This Conference will have an extra special feeling, as 2023 marks the 50-year Anniversary of EUROPARC! There will be different celebrations throughout the year, but of course we will not miss the chance to celebrate widely with our EUROPARC family. Register now!
