In 2013 the EUROPARC Conference delegates will gather in Hungary´s second largest city nearby the national park, a UNESCO Natural Heritage Site. The theme of the 2013 conference is “40 years Working for Nature”. EUROPARC Federation is celebrating its achievements since its creation in 1973 in Switzerland. In that very same year, the Hortobágy National Park was founded being the largest continuous natural grassland in Europe. Hortobágy National Park has been inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO on the 1st of December in 1999 in the category of cultural landscapes. At the 2013 Annual conference, participants from across Europe will not only celebrate the “40 years Working for Nature” but also look into the future of protected areas management in a more and more uniting Europe. Programmes such as the cross-border PA management of TransParkNet, the environmental youth education via the Junior Ranger programme and camps, the Volunteer Management in Protected Areas as much as the growing network of the parks working under the Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas, are outstanding achievements building the very base for EUROPARC members´ activities.

At the 2013 conference, a special focus will be given on integrated management of protected areas and experts from this field will share their experiences in workshops, on field trips and in presentations.
