In 1989 in the EU nature management sector, a need was felt to create a network for natural site managers in the EU – a place where both the people in the field and policy makers would feel at home, and a place that would facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience, a place to network. Those needs led to the birth of the Eurosite network: a home for suits and muddy boots.
Since then, 30 years have passed in which Eurosite has made an impact on many. To mark such an important milestone, we cordially invite you to help us celebrate during the Anniversary Annual Meeting, hosted by our member WWF Oasi from 5-7 November 2019 in Monticiano, Italy (Advised travel dates 4 & 8 November).
The event is open to members and non-members. The business meetings (Board, Council, AGM) are for members only.
Please find the terms and conditions for participation here.
Additionally, participants can choose to take part in workshops on management planning, peatland restoration and/or financing mechanisms for conservation.
On the final day participants have the opportunity to enjoy a field trip to the beautiful Orbetello natural reserve.
8 November: bus from Monticiano to the Florence Airport at 09.00
Please provide your arrival and departure information upon registration or via e-mail.
Participants are responsible for their own accommodation. We have however made a selection of accommodations for you. For more information and to book the place of your preference, please have a look here. For those participants who reside in accommodations further away from the venue transport will be arranged to/from in the morning and evening. As you will see, not all accommodations offer breakfast. As organisers we will be able to arrange a solution in Monticiano, but please let us know if you will stay in an accommodation without a breakfast option. Upon making your reservation, do not forget to mention you are coming for the 'Eurosite/WWF event' if you are booking through e-mail. The accommodations are only available for attendees.
On Wednesday 6 November there will be the traditional EuroCocktail. All participants are invited to bring along some produce of your region in Europe to share with the other participants. Please note that there might be no refrigerators or microwaves available.
