The World Parks Congress 2014 is the decade’s most important forum to identify and communicate inspiring solutions involving protected areas for some of the world’s most pressing global challenges.

It will bring together around 3,000 people from over 160 countries, to reflect on proven approaches for protected area governance and management, to inspire people from all sectors to build a much deeper connection to nature, and to shape and guide the implementation of innovative solutions for people and protected areas for the next decade and beyond.

Your expertise and inspiration are needed so that together we can ensure that protected areas take their place among the most important responses to the challenges the world faces.

Ultimately, your presence at the Congress will mean that you can influence the outcome of the next generation of protected area policy and practice and contribute to a healthy world and healthy society.
