On September 9th 2020, at the EUROPARC 2020 Online Conference, Alberto Arroyo Schnell (IUCN) introduced the ENVISION project and the concept of inclusive conservation. His presentation was part of an interactive session, where participants could learn and discuss protected area matters, and exchange views and ideas about specific conservation practices.

The EUROPARC Federation is the network for Europe’s natural and cultural heritage. It works to improve the management of Protected Areas in Europe through international cooperation, exchange of ideas and experience, and by influencing policy. This year’s EUROPARC conference looked at what skills are needed and what capacities protected areas need to provide to address new challenges such as, implement the 2030 Biodiversity Strategy and respond to the post COVID-19 world.
