Vision & Mission
Eurosite is working to create a Europe where nature is cared for, protected, restored and valued by all. We do this by providing practitioners with opportunities to network and exchange experience on practical nature management.
We are a network of site managers, non-governmental and governmental organisations, and individuals and organisations committed to our vision. Our members are based across Europe - from the Atlantic islands to the Black Sea; and from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. Nature knows no boundaries: we believe the future protection and conservation of Europe's nature will only be achieved through international cooperation. Why not join us?

Eurosite was born from twinning. In 1987 the European Natural Sites Twinning Programme was launched. Under this programme, 33 European sites signed an agreement to take part in a programme of technical, scientific, and cultural exchanges. Twinning formed the basis of this agreement. Two years later, in 1989, Eurosite was created in response to the clear demand to exchange natural site management information in Europe.

In Article 11 of the Habitats Directive, it is stated that Member States shall undertake surveillance of the conservation status of natural habitats and species, with particular regard to priority natural habitat types and priority species. There is a lack of knowledge about the conservation status of habitats and species and this is an issue that needs to be solved. Efficient monitoring can provide the data needed.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker wants to be "big on big things and small on small things” and it doesn’t get much bigger than safeguarding the environment, the world’s life support system.
This year's EEB annual conference will take a hard look at the roles of ‘better regulation’, sustainability and the rule of law in rising to this challenge.
