Swiss Parks of National Importance are characterised by their scenic beauty, rich biodiversity and valuable cultural heritage. The people within the park communities are committed not only to preserving this valuable resource, but also to improving and utilising it for the economic and social development of their region.

The Campaign

Background picture: Binntal Regional Nature Park

Since 2008 Switzerland has created a number of Parks of National Importance in all language regions. Further parks are in the development stage. Awareness among the general public of these new parks and what they have to offer is still small. The information campaign aims to raise awareness of Swiss parks and motivate the public to visit one or more parks.
