LT&C will discuss the “Role and potential of Arctic regions to support and implement the 30X30 Goal with support of tourism” at the Northern Sustainable Development Forum

Our Partner, the Northern Sustainable Development Forum (NSDF), has for the third time invited LT&C to design and run a special workshop for its upcoming third NSDF event, which will take place September 27-30 in Yakutsk, Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Russia, in the frame of the 30th anniversary of the Northern Forum.

The topic of the LT&C workshop will be “Role and potential of Arctic regions to support and implement the 30X30 Goal with support of tourism”Related to the Sustainable Development Goals on Biodiversity (SDGs 14 & 15), at COP15 of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), a critical decision for the future of the world will have to be taken: The “30×30” Goal, extending by 2030 the worlds marine and terrestrial protected areas (PAs) to at least 30%, is up for decision. More than 70 countries, among them most of the Arctic countries and the entire EU, are committed to this goal. 

Tourism has demonstrated, among other by 52 LT&C-Examples in the world, its exceptionally high potential. It can play an essential role to achieve the implementation of the global protected area network and thereby securing its own business base. For the Arctic countries and regions, with their specific natural conditions and joint work on sustainable development in the Arctic Council and the Northern Forum, “going for 30×30” and involving tourism to achieve this goal should be a natural mission. – How this could look like we aim to discuss in more detail during the workshop.

The workshop will be organised in a hybrid format. Participants (in particular from Russia) can both meet physically in Yakutsk or will join virtually by Zoom. Please, check here for any updates about the schedule and design of the workshop (and also have a look at some of the results of the LT&C workshop at the NSDF in 2019.)
