Saturday 9th September

Monte Rio Hotel, Termas de S. Pedro do Sul – 18:30

The final session of the Conference will allow to look back at what we have experienced and learned in the action packed days! It will be an opportunity too, to celebrate the success of the projects in 2016 with special awards.

The transboundary awards will be given as well as the Alfred Toepfer Scholarship and Alfred Topefer medal.

We will also have a special session hosted by the Goldman Environmental Prize. Special guests from the USA and Goldman prize winners, including our own President Ignace Schops will inspire with their stories of grassroots environmental activism from across Europe.

This session will culminate in the announcement of the destination of the 2018 Conference.

After the session we will retire to the EUROPARC Gala dinner hosted by our gracious hosts, and get ready for the final party to close a “magical” 2017 Conference.
