We would like to invite public sector representatives, entrepreneurs, students and researchers to the event “Sustainable Arctic Tourism – Challenges and solutions for green economy”, a virtual Greennovation Camp hosted by the Interreg Nord-project GRUDE – Green rural economy.
This is a cross-border event with participants from Finland, Sweden and Norway across different business sectors. The event will be opened by keynote speakers, followed by a panel discussion. After lunch, we dig deeper into the subject of the day within three group sessions.
Keynotes include director Lone Helle and project manager Inger-Lisa Brones from Visit Tromsø-Region AS who speaks about sustainable destination development, professor Dieter Müller from Umeå University who speaks about arctic tourism as an opportunity and challenge to business and community and entrepreneur Matti Ala-Outinen from Hawkhill company who concentrates on actions towards sustainable tourism business. In addition to common discussions, group sessions present cases dealing with culturally sustainable tourism, biowaste gathering in tourism centres and code of conduct in wilderness.
