The Sierra de Guadarrama National Park in Spain covers 34,000 ha across the majestic Guadarrama mountain range. The park features unique granite rock formations, and rare and diverse plant and animal species. Given the close proximity of the park to major cities such as Madrid, the park has high numbers of visitors and is heavily used for recreation and relaxation. At the same time, there are many people interested in preserving its natural features.
ENVISION is supporting (“acompañando”) a debate to navigate these diverse interests in a transparent, inclusive and trusting space to share ideas, find common ground, and address trade-offs with different visions. ENVISION will also work with stakeholders to develop a decision-support toolbox to help craft policy in an inclusive manner.
