Deputy First Minister encourages action for EUROPARC Youth Manifesto
The EUROPARC Youth Manifesto was launched on Friday 21 September to over 400 delegates at EUROPARC 2018 in Aviemore. Deputy First Minister, John Swinney addressed the conference and supported the call for the protected areas in Europe to take action.
Young people are keen to be involved in the decision making processes when it comes to sustaining the rural landscape. All summer young people from across Europe have been working together to put together their vision on the most important aspects of living, learning and working in protected areas and rural communities and this Manifesto offers practical ways for change.
John Swinney, Deputy First Minister said: “It is fantastic to see the Cairngorms National Park Authority taking forward the EUROPARC Youth Manifesto, with support from the Cairngorms LEADER programme."
