Europarc Conference 2019: "Nature on your mind - understanding our values"

Date: 24 September 2019 - 27 September 2019
Location: J├╝rmala, Latvia

The EUROPARC Conference 2019 is the key event of the year for those working in Europe’s Protected Areas. In 2019, EUROPARC Conference is co-organised with the Latvian Nature Conservation Agency.

Entitled “Nature on your mind – understanding our values”, the conference will focus on the role of nature in human health. Conference delegates will be inspired by international experts presenting nature at the core of their businesses and projects.In the Conference’s workshop programme, the more than 350 delegates will be invited to create “green prescriptions” to address current needs and seek new opportunities to integrate nature-based solutions across different sectors of society. In addition, Conference delegates will have the chance to discover some of the natural wonders of Latvia during a full-day of field trips. There are more than 600 protected areas in Latvia covering ~13% of the total territory of the country.

Modern science shows that nature is a complex system and the existence of its components - water, air, soil, plants, animals and humans - is interdependent. The basis of economic prosperity is nature in all its diversity.As the world continues to rapidly evolve and the pressure on ecosystems and nature resources continues to grow, the role of protected areas in conservation of nature integrity also increases.
The registration closed on September 10.
