Making an IMPACT: Putting protected areas at the heart of EU policies for the sustainable development of regions and cities.
Organised by EUROPARC Federation and counting with the participation of the project partners, the final Conference of the project IMPACT Interreg Europe will be celebrated within the workshop programme of the European Week of Regions and Cities.
|Event location||Brussels Convention Centre Brussels|
Since it started, IMPACT Interreg Europe project has demonstrated the benefits of Interregional Cooperation, facilitated the exchange of 38 good practices between six partner regions across Europe and fostered the creation of five Action Plans that will undoubtely contribute to the sustainable development of the Protected Areas involved in them.
Furthermore, IMPACT has allowed us to acquire a new perspective in which Protected Areas are placed at the centre of the socio-economic development of European regions and local communities.
Today, it is time to collect the results of this cooperation, sum up the lessons learned and put into context all the actions carried out in a final IMPACT project Conference. And to do so, we couldn´t find a better framework than the biggest European event for experts in regional and local development and key event on EU Regional Policy: the European Week of Regions and Cities.
