We are almost at the end of a turbulent year in many ways. ALPARC is not an exception, indeed, it is the last year of our Administrative Council mandate. New elections are planned during the General Assembly, on the 27th of January 2017, in the Gesäuse National Parc in Styria (Austria). It was also a year with a lot of international events and projects on the theme of ecological network, regional development and mountain environment education, as you will see in our next 2016 Activity Report.Here we go, with dynamism and motivation in this new year to progress together for the Alps and for our Protected Areas.
In this perspective, ALPARC team wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year fostering protection and sustainable development in the Alps.
