The study tour Building Natura 2000 in the western Balkans and Turkey - the role of civil society will take place in Brussels, 13-16 September 2010.
This study tour takes place as part of the People 2 People Programme (P2P) run by the European Commission. It gives participants the opportunity to familiarise themselves with Natura 2000 and with EU environment and biodiversity policy in general. It offers participants exchange and networking opportunities in a respectful atmosphere among themselves and with European-level as well as Member State-based civil society organisations active in this field. About 40 participants from western Balkan countries and Turkey will attend this event, which is organized in cooperation with WWF.
The P2P is one of the three strands of the Civil Society Facility of the Directorate General Enlargement of the European Commission.
