Who can sign the Declaration?

Land Stewardship involves a wide range of stakeholders in nature conservation through voluntary agreements with land stewardship organisations, reflecting the coresponsibility we all have on nature conservation. According with this principle, we open the Declaration to everyone. Public and private organisations, landowners, enterprises, land users, and individual persons can join the Barcelona Declaration.

How to sign the Declaration

During its official presentation last 07th November 2014, the Declaration was signed by xct, Eurosite, Legambiente, Conservatoire d'espaces naturels du Languedoc-Roussillon (CEN-LR), Prysma, Fundació Catalunya la Pedrera, Deutschen Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU), the Government of Catalonia, Fundación Biodiversidad, Foro de Redes y Entidades de Custodia del Territorio and the Czech Union for Nature Conservation (CSOP).

Now we open the Declaration to new signatures to boost this European movement for nature conservation!
