General Information

The Conference approach is based on the two Conference pillars, which are:

  1. The theme ‘Tribute to our landscape, where nature and people meet in harmony’. Finding long-term harmony is the challenge.
  2. Celebrating 50 years of EUROPARC Federation: learning from the past, preparing for the future.

The three central questions during the whole conference are:

  1. Why, relating to your topic, is it relevant to find long-term harmony and fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals?
  2. How can we, personally and together, change our behaviour and act on regional, national and European level to find this harmony?
  3. What lessons have we learned from past policies and measures with regards to the impact on the European Landscape?
