Based on fieldwork the project will
- facilitate knowledge collaboration and dialogue during a workshop in South Greenland and
- deliver reports and academic papers on the critical links between gender, youth and small-scale business development in fisheries and tourism in South Greenland.
The project explores opportunities for sustainable growth and value creation in small-scale businesses in South Greenland with a particular focus on tourism and fisheries, taking into consideration issues concerning the specific demographic challenges of the region. Value creation is understood in a broad sense to include not simply contributions to GNP and company profitability, but also to broader sustainable social and socio-demographic developments with an equal emphasis on other well-being aspects – e.g. aspects defined by the Arctic Human Development Report (2014).
