By using these words of warning the UK Minister of Environmental Affairs opened the conference ‘Natura 2000 and People: a Partnership’ about an EU project which was designed to preserve biodiversity when implementing an ecological network of preservation areas.

A balanced partnership between nature and culture probably represents more than a normal challenge. Is there in the EU a real political intention of realizing a partnership of this kind? Is it possible to implement the partnership within the priorities of the EU facing the future? As long ago as 1970 the sociologist Jean Baudrillard gave this merciless assessment of our consumer society, ‘Whether we speak about countryside planning, conservation of environment, it is, in every case, a question of recycling a nature which is itself doomed’ (Baudrillard 1998, p.101.)
