Natura 2000 Twinning Workshop
Ackerdijkse Plassen and Tiengemeten, Netherlands, 30 November – 1 December 2016
Eurosite and its member organisation Natuurmonumenten, ELO and ECNC are organising a workshop on twinning, as part of the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process. Twinning is a structured collaboration between people from two natural sites – NGOs, private land owners and governmental organisations – allowing synergies, joint working and learning for the benefit of Europe’s nature. Natura 2000 site managers and the European Commission see an important role for twinning to improve site management practices, however a structure behind the concept is required.
During this twinning workshop you and the other participants will design a (new) Natura 2000 Twinning Framework, taking forward the experiences from Eurosite, ELO, ECNC and other existing twinning programs. This Framework will capture the outcomes and lessons learned from cooperation between Natura 2000 sites and also make them accessible to the wider site management community.
By contributing to this workshop, you can make sure that the Natura 2000 Twinning Framework addresses your needs.
Workshop report is now available for download here.

The concept of twinning European cities is already well known, now Eurosite and partners aim to make the twinning of natural sites just as widespread and talked about.
