UK National Parks Conference

NPUK Conference Logo

We are delighted that we will be hosting the UK National Parks Conference here in the glorious Yorkshire Dales National Park 17-19 September. The Conference takes place every other year and brings together the key decision-makers from across the UK’s 15 National Parks.

The Conference takes place in this 70th anniversary year of the 1949 National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act so we’ll be celebrating the history of National Parks across the UK. The conference will also look to the future through our theme of ‘New horizons’.

100 delegates, including National Park Chairs and CEOs, representatives from Government and other agencies will discuss the key issues facing National Parks and have the opportunity to network and, of course, experience the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

We are grateful to the following partners for their support of the conference.
