Making an IMPACT: 

Putting Protected Areas at the heart of EU policies for sustainable development of regions and cities

What can Protected Areas do to promote sustainable development in both regions and cities?

In this session, we will share the best good practices issued from the IMPACT #Interreg Europe, a project focused on Protected Areas as engines of regional sustainable development. We will hear of innovative ways to involve local stakeholders in socioeconomic activities. We will also learn about a successful protocol to promote sustainable tourism in protected areas. Lastly, we will discover how a Protected Area located in an urban context can play a decisive role in many EU policies to promote sustainability.
