The conference “Protected areas in the community: the obstacles to economic growth or opportunities for sustainable development” took place on 29.03.2012. It was part of the Podlasie Regional Forum for Environmental Knowledge Transfer PREFEKT conference series. It was organized by the Mammal Research Institute PAS in Białowieża in cooperation with the Institute of Spatial Management and Housing in Warsaw and the Knyszyn Forest Landscape Park in Supraśl. These included representatives from the General and Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection, national and landscape parks, the Regional Directorate of State Forests, universities and research institutions, regional and local authorities. Fifteen presentations covered various themes for example how to build public acceptance for nature conservation, the economic values of protected areas, natural factors in spatial planning and opportunities for pro-biodiversity businesses. A presentation about natural factors in spatial planning by Piotr Fogel included a very important insight that insufficient consideration of environmental factors frequently results in ineffective nature conservation. It was an excellent forum for discussion of the opportunities and problems related to development in conservation areaes. At the end of the conference director of Knyszyn Forest Landscape Park in Supraśl – Joanna Kurzawa concluded that “we represent different institutions, but today we played as a team”.
