Association Nationalparks Austria
The non-profit Nationalparks Austria Association was founded in 2011 and has its head office in Molln (Upper Austria). It has set itself the goal, through the coordination and implementation of joint projects, of promoting the dynamic further development and collaboration of national parks in Austria. It also aims to safeguard common interests in accordance with the Austrian national parks strategy and to encourage and support its members in all respects.
To achieve its purposes, the Association arranges events, exhibitions and scientific activities (studies, databases, etc.), publishes information and websites, carries out marketing and public relations activities, and exchanges and adapts organisational, training and management standards internally, as well as sharing experiences.
Project "Public Relations of National Parks Austria 2015-2018”
The concept of the national park is strengthened by the project "Public Relations of National Parks Austria 2015-2018”. The Austrian national parks should not only be observed as something given, the exceptional achievements, unique landscapes and the significance for Austria are also brought to the fore. With the publication of the umbrella organisation National Parks Austria during the campaign and other measures, identification with the national parks is increased.
This project is supported by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW) and the European Union.
