The network is 20

Tuesday, 30 June 2015

Alparc is celebrating its 20th birthday. Since 1995, the network has been opening doors for exchange, recognition and joint activities among the protected areas in the Alps. Staff members of protected areas have found each other across cultural, linguistic and legislative borders. Not only did they live in the same mountain range, they also recognized their similar ambitions and concerns.

During the past 20 years, Alparc has realized many successful projects and created numerous opportunities for protected area staff members to learn from and inspire each other. This is something we can be proud of.

Therefore, the year 2015 is a year of celebrations and festive activities, among which a land art photo contest and the first edition of the international Youth at the Top event. We will also take the opportunity to think about the role of the Alpine protected areas today and in the future, and come together to establish a shared vision for the years to come.

We look forward to sharing experiences, forming new friendships, joining strengths and realizing new projects together for the Alps.
