The main actions are: • Light infrastructures in the parks and natural areas, creating facilitated natural zones, providing signage and fixed and movable equipment • Identification of dangerous sites that need to be secured • Initiatives to involve population, mainly elderly, disabled and children (technical campuses, excursions, etc.) using sport as an associative and active element • Elaboration of a territory marketing plan to manage natural resources, mapping “accessible natural zones”, creating “park guardians”; • Establishment of a network among parks for good practices exchange.
