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?


Upcoming events

  • "Sustainable Forestry" is a new thematic exchange launched after observing that there were no existing networks promoting exchanges on sustainable forestry for practices done by civil society.  

  • Invasive alien species are one of the major threats to Europe’s biodiversity. Tackling the problem of IAS has been and remains a huge challenge for nature conservation sector and protected area management bodies. In order to support these efforts, the Duna-Ipoly National Park Directorate and WWF Hungary will organise an international workshop on best practices in invasive plant management within Natura 2000 sites and protected areas.  

  • The World Fish Migration Platform invites you to take part in the second World Fish Migration Day on 21 May 2016.  

  • In May, people across Europe will get to celebrate the European Union’s Natura 2000 network. A variety of exciting events are being organised at Natura 2000 sites on and around Saturday, 21 May 2016 for members of the public and visitors to these protected havens.  
  • During this meeting on future-proof nature policy, organised by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, the implementation of nature policy in Europe will be discussed.

    European authorities, environmental organisations, representatives of industry and other stakeholders will address the conference, which will take the form of an interactive meeting where delegates are challenged to help devise a future-proof nature policy.  

  • The French Ministry of Defence and the Conservatoire d’espaces naturels Rhônes-Alpes organise the international nature conference “Conciliate operational training with preservation of biodiversity on military camps” in Nîmes, France, from 28 June - 1 July 2016, as part of the LIFE Project Nature Defense 2 Mil.  

    The programme includes a plenary session on national and international issues, a visit to Garrigues Camp to see military activities and actions of biodiversity restoration, and exchanges based on lessons learned by militaries and NGOs.

  • Held once every four years, the IUCN World Conservation Congress brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia, with the goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.  
  • This Thematic Networking Event is organised as part of the European Commission's Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process. More information will soon be available.
