European Day of Parks
Every year European Day of Parks takes place on and around 24th of May. It aims to bring people closer to nature and raise public awareness on the importance of the natural beauty preserved in Protected Areas and the importance of conservation and sustainable management of those places.

The European Day of Parks is a commemorative day for Protected Areas across Europe that was launched in 1999 by the EUROPARC Federation to celebrate Protected Areas throughout Europe.

It is important that as many EUROPARC sections, organisations and members as possible get behind this event, and show together our strength in numbers. The power of a day when we are all speaking with one voice, using our local, regional, national and European media to show who we are and what we do. So, celebrate and support European Day of Parks!

European Day of Parks 2015 “Nature is Our Business”

24 May, all over Europe!
Every year EUROPARC members “gather” events around May 24th to celebrate and raise the profile of the value and benefits of all our Protected Areas. By coming together around one theme, on one occasion in the year we have a stronger collective voice.

On European Day of Parks 2015, we show that Nature is our Business. Hundreds of parks across Europe come together with a shared passion for nature and landscapes. Thousands of people will take part in activities and events, finding out the importance of Protected Areas to the environmental, social and economic development of our regions.

You might see a special natural market place, showcasing all local products, or joint promotions with sustainable businesses. Nature guiding and nature watching will also be highlighted.
Europe’s parks are hosts not just to trees but the all biodiversity on land and sea. The EUROPARC Federation supports our Protected Areas to ensure that natural and cultural heritage is our greatest resource in Europe.
