The EOCA is a non-for-profit association which promotes various projects linked to nature conservation presented by different organizations and authorities involved in nature preservation. Once the projects have been validated by the scientific committee of EOCA, they are submitted to a public vote. Only the project that will get the largest number of votes will be financed.


Help the project of the Gran Paradiso be financed by casting your vote here.


For further information about the project, visit the Gran Paradiso National Park website.

QA - LabexThe role of scientific councils             LOGO ALPARC signature E

Experts from science, protected mountain areas and administration will discuss the role of scientific councils regarding science and management in protected areas.


The workshop will be based on the presentation of various models in organising scientific councils existing in different countries and for different categories of protection. Afterwards, different aspects of scientific councils as an interface between science and protected areas will be discussed: To what extent and under what conditions are scientific councils able to promote scientific research in protected areas? To what extent and under what conditions can they support the management and the policy of a protected area and mediate conflicts? How can they contribute to building networks and cooperation?


Outcomes of the workshop will be recommendations concerning the establishment and the management of scientific councils, an analysis of scientific councils as interfaces between science and mountain protected areas (article in a scientific journal) and inputs to a planned Alpine Space project on the governance of protected areas and the contribution of science.


As the number of participants is limited to 40, the date of registration will be taken into account in the selection of participants.

The project “Equilibri Naturali” is designed to bring children closer to nature.It focuses in particular on addressing current social issues such as obesity, short attention spans and dependency on television and computer games by promoting outdoor experiences through creative activities and a more relaxed pace of life.

 In addition to the opportunity to teach children about sustainability, the outdoor activities help to create a sense of "belonging" to an area. The activities allow children to rediscover the value of interacting with others (playing games, shared outdoor adventures) whilst also improving the way that they learn.

The Natural Balance programme was developed by the Monti Sibillini National Park in Italy and has been implemented by AIDAP (Italian Association of protected area directors and staff). Many Italian protected areas have signed up to the project, including the Belluno Dolomites National Park, which is very actively involved.

Details of the Natural Balance programme and events are available online at the Italian protected areas website (www.parks.it ).

 Cette importante manifestation se tiendra du 9 au 12 octobre 2013 à Saint-Martin Vésubie, dans le Mercantour, site volontairement choisi pour profiter du 20e anniversaire de présence avérée du loup en France afin de dresser un état des lieux à la fois rétrospectif et prospectif, dépassant très largement l’échelle locale. L’initiative (et le pilotage) du symposium en reviennent, ce qui est original, à l’Université.

Le titre du colloque : « Vivre ensemble avec le loup. Hier, aujourd’hui… et demain? » est à lui seul un véritable challenge. L’enjeu est de réunir à la fois des acteurs (de tous types, institutionnels et privés) et des chercheurs (historiens de toutes périodes mais aussi géographes, sociologues, ethnologues, biologistes..) dans un colloque ouvert au public et à finalité « sociale ». Il s’agit de dresser un état des lieux comparatif et de proposer des perspectives d’aménagement du statut de l’animal sauvage en France et en Europe, à la lumière des expériences du passé et de l’actuel.
