Effective designation of Protected Areas requires the careful consideration of their social impacts. These refer to a variety of issues such as the distribution of power, social equity, social relations and more importantly the impact of Protected Areas on people’s wellbeing. In this talk, Dr Jones will analyse the different types of social impacts that have been recorded by academic studies in European Protected Areas, the region with the largest in proportion number of protected spaces across the world. She will also discuss how COVID-19 is shifting the way protected areas are managed in the region and more importantly how the coronavirus crisis is expected to change the relationship between protected areas, visitors and local communities.
