We propose to contribute to sustainable development of coastal communities in the Arctic through qualitative case studies of cruise tourism development in six cruise communities across the European Arctic.
This project will increase our knowledge of how the local tourism industry can create new opportunities as they respond to the ongoing transformative changes of Svalbard’s society and environment and contribute to the development of the analytical concepts of transformation and adaptation.
CityLoops brings together seven ambitious European cities to demonstrate a series of innovative tools and urban planning approaches, aimed at closing the loops of urban material flows and increasing their regenerative capacity.
In this project, we investigate gender differences in participation and leadership in climate related processes - everyday practices, decision-making and adaptation strategies - at all levels in society.
Regions that fail to renew themselves face uncertain prospects. The research project SeeRRI – managed from Bodø and funded by the European Union – will explore how regions such as Nordland can lay strategies for a sustainable and profitable future.
