Hello from Rovaniemi

Just arrived in the home of Santa Claus to start a research workshop/field course for our Nordregio project on Partnerships for Sustainability: Arctic Tourism in Times of Change. I’ve got my Cape Breton partners with me (Mary Tulle, from Destination Cape Breton, and Catalina Belalcazar, an MBA-CED student).  A link to the Cape Breton Post column about this work can be found here.
