Sustainable Regions – Sustainable Local Communities

A comparison of experience in dealing with ongoing changes in resource-based regions and communities in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic Regions of the Nordic countries and Canada.

The Arctic and Subarctic regions which historically have been heavily dependent on natural resources – both renewable and non-renewable – are currently in a situation where both regions and especially local communities are strongly challenged by globalization processes. And these challenges are greatly felt in the arctic and subarctic regions of both the Nordic countries and Canada.
