The newsletter of the Alpine Network of Protected Areas N°54 - February 2015

N°54 - February 2015

The Network is celebrating its 20th Anniversary!
Thus, for ALPARC, 2015 will be a year of celebration, of assessment but also of reflection on the stakes and strategies for protection and cooperation in the Alps for the 20 years to come. A year under the motto “Reconnecting humans, mountains and nature”, as the Alpine Network of Protected Areas is first and foremost about men and women committed to Alpine mountains. This anniversary is dedicated to all those who every day work and manage life in the protected areas and who have been giving life and impetus to the ALPARC network for 20 years.
