Year of Young People 2018 logoEUROPARC Conference 2018 – European Parks inspired by the next generation!

Youth are the future of Protected Areas across Europe – YOU are the decision-makers of tomorrow!

It is important you are given the opportunity to consider how the management of our environment will affect you, so you can express your thoughts, opinions and get involved in the issues that will affect you in the future!

  • Do you want to explore wild places, learn new skills and make new friends?
  • Do you want to share your ideas and join an international conversation about nature protection?
  • Do you want to help shape the future of wild places across Europe?
