The key aims of the EUROPARC Federation are to:
Promote good practice in the management of protected areas
Facilitate the establishment of new protected areas
Raise the profile of protected areas as a vital means of safeguarding many of the continent''s most valuable natural heritage assets, and thereby to increase support for their future protection
Influence the future development of public policies and programmes, especially with the European Union, to the benefit of protected areas'' objectives.
The EUROPARC Federation realises its aims through a range of practical activities and initiatives which can be explored on this web-site. In doing so, it draws on the vast knowledge and experience within its membership, which is shared and applied to benefit both individual parks and the European protected area network as a whole.
EUROPARC''s activities are coordinated by a multi-national team at its Headquarters in Grafenau, in the Bavarian Forest, Germany. Contact: email@example.com.
