Are you working in the field of Sustainable Agriculture in your Protected Area?
The EUROPARC Federation is looking for members who have agriculture production in or around their Protected Area and want to understand and develop more sustainable agriculture practices.

The Siggen Seminar will run from 10th-13th March and will focus on Protected Areas promoting Sustainable Agriculture initiatives that:
  • contribute to protect habitats and species;
  • improve landscape management;
  • support the work landowners and farmers, and resulting in high-quality productions.
In particular, we will be looking at some partnership and management practices from France, Italy and Ireland, with inputs from other organisations, with a view to developing new guidance and models to improve the cooperation between protected areas and the farming community.

Our seminars are always fun, lively, interactive and informative. We also aim to make them relevant to the work of Protected Areas and certainly are a valuable chance to learn from others across Europe. We ask participants to come prepared with case studies or example that we can work through.

The seminar will bring together EUROPARC members, especially from national agencies, regional governments and parks. Participants will meet fellow Protected Area managers from across Europe in a relaxing and fun atmosphere and return back renewed, refreshed and invigorated in their work!
Join EUROPARC Commission on Sustainable Agriculture

We will also look to the creation of a Sustainable Agriculture commission for EUROPARC to take forward this area of work, developing tools and good practice guidance for the future.

IF you are interested in participating in the meeting of the new EUROPARC Commission then please foresee a departure on Monday 13th March. All others can depart on Sunday afternoon 12th March. You must indicate this preference at the time of registration in order that we can correctly reserve your accommodation. Read here the terms of reference of the Commission that will be created.

Register today!
The seminar is FREE for members of the EUROPARC Federation. It includes participation in the Seminar, accommodation and meals. Participants will therefore ONLY cover their own travel to and from the event.

Places are limited and registrations close in one week time! 

Annually, EUROPARC organises the Seminar for members thanks to the generosity of the Alfred Toepfer Stiftung F.V.S..

The Seminars take place in Gut Siggen, north Germany, in the Seminar Center of Alfred Toepfer Stiftung.
