The project aim is to investigate ways to develop sustainable tourism in the Arctic and make Arctic economic development more sustainable. This will be done through a series of workshops in various Nordic Arctic destinations.
Skills transfer from the existing population’s human capital base and its use of marine natural resources is expected to play an essential role in achieving innovative sustainable tourism. This may range from creating local products for tourist consumption (e.g. art, foodstuffs) to providing guided leadership of tourist experiences, such as fishing or wildlife viewing.
The 2nd Workshop on Sustainable Tourism Development in the Nordic Arctic took place in Iceland on 18-22 March, 2019.
