One important aim of EUROPARC is to give protected areas a strong voice in the EU. Therefore, we have an office in Brussels, that gives us better access to the EU institutions, provides important insights into policy making and what goes on in European nature protection. Updates on the latest development in the EU are reflected in "Brussels news", in the members-only section of the Federation website.
