The European Parks Academy (EPA) is a new international training format that addresses the increasing capacity needs for planning and effectively managing protected areas.
The unique cooperation between IUCN´s World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA), the research institution E.C.O. and the Alpen-Adria University Klagenfurt resulted in well-designed and targeted training modules hold by renown experts.
After a successful first round of the academy in 2017 (IUCN News), this year´s event will focus again on three highly relevant topics: „Branding & Communication“, „Ecological Monitoring“ and „Management of World Heritage Sites”. The summer academy takes place from 16th to 28th July 2018 in Klagenfurt/Austria.
