The objective of the preparatory project is to develop a high quality main project application.
The project focuses on the current challenges in Sámi and indigenous communities, including the search for sustainable local livelihoods, diversification of local economies and stemming of out-migration. The objective is to support local tourism companies, municipalities and communities in developing sustainable, competitive and attractive Sámi and indigenous ecotourism, based on the local needs. Our project aims to empower local actors and to boost local economies in culturally, socially and environmentally responsible ways.
The main outputs include new knowledge of indigenous tourism as a vehicle to learn from indigenous cultures, tourism products based on this knowledge and clustering of tourism companies offering possibilities to learn from Sámi, indigenous and indigenous culture. The beneficiaries of the project are local tourism companies, municipalities and communities, non-local tourism companies operating in the area, and tourists visiting the area. The novelty of our project lays in approaching Sámi and indigenous tourism as community-based cultural ecotourism that promotes learning from Sámi and indigenous-culture.
