The next General Assembly of the network ALPAR C will take place on September, 6-7th 2012 in Valposchiavo (CH). This day will be a very special one for the network, because on this occasion, the ALPARC Association will be created.
It is one step that allows ALPARC to structure and close cooperation and legally binding to the Alpine Convention and still to maintain a strong self-reliance as a club. This step is the increasing number of projects and requests of protected areas can be coordinated more effectively. The only currently known solution of such a large "community" as the network it represents a legal status is to announce the founding of an association.
The 8th General Assembly of the Alpine Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC) will take place during the AlpWeek 2012.
