Sustainable Development
The Swiss parks are model regions for sustainable development. They act in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.

The parks are committed to supporting the ecology, the society and the economy in their region. They follow the concept of «strong sustainability». Nature and landscape are the basis of their activities for the community and the economy is built.

The three fields of sustainability (ecology, society and economy) overlap and mutually influence each other. The park sponsorships take this into account. They think holistically when carrying out their projects. They offer a platform for the exchange of information and ideas between the representatives of the various sectors of sustainability and encourage their networking.

Research: Higher education colleges as well as a few park organisations conduct research on various topics related to the Swiss Parks. The "Swiss Park Research «coordinates the majority of the studies».
