Founded in 1995, ALPARC has ever since been working restlessly for an ever-stronger cooperation between Alpine Protected Areas. In 2020, it is within the unprecedent context of global pandemic that our organization has reached 25 years of international exchange of expertise, techniques and methods. Although the sanitary situation made impossible any kind of celebration, it has only strengthened our wish to keep on working for Nature conservation and protection. A year later, after months of virtual meetings the whole team is hoping to finally reconnect with face-to-face interaction. A festive and studious event has been consequently planned within Les Ecrins National to celebrate a posteriori 25 years of cooperation. The event intended to Alpine Protected Areas’ representatives and delegations will take place from September 16th to September 18th. More information to come.
