Christian Neumüller, Head of International Relations, Vanoise National Park (France)

  [...] I have been fortunate enough to benefit from ALPARC's unifying role in the course of various activities that have been organised: thematic seminars, technical projects, general assemblies and friendly sporting events.

[...] Paradoxically, ALPARC's coordination of a multinational network has also helped me by promoting local partnership activities in conjunction with our longstanding twin and neighbour, the Gran Paradiso National Park. [...]

So for me, and for the Vanoise National Park, it is very important that ALPARC's work should continue. The network has given us a chance to hear about a wide variety of experiences, opportunities to undertake activities that we could not have engaged in alone, and has helped us to recognise that combining forces provides a strength that is useful both within our own protected areas and in terms of general conservation and promotion activities in the Alpine areas that are our heritage.
