This website for enterprises, teachers, students and others interested in sustainable entrepreneurship is developed by the Norwegian University of science and technology (NTNU, https://www.ntnu.edu/ ) and the University of Groningen (https://www.rug.nl/) in cooperation. Department of international business at NTNU is responsible for the website.
The Interreg VB project PROWAD LINK is the starting point of the development of the webpage. The project aims to unlock the potential of natural areas as drivers for jobs and sustainable development.
The project is a cooperation between partners in the North Sea Region: Wadden Sea world heritage area (Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands) – the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world (https://www.waddensea-worldheritage.org/), the Geirangerfjord world heritage area (Norway, https://www.fjordsenter.com/) and The Wash & North Norfolk Coast marine site (United Kingdom, https://sac.jncc.gov.uk/site/UK0017075).
Editor for the website is Else Ragni Yttredal, NTNU
This website will give input to the what, why and how – questions on sustainable development for small tourism businesses.
It is meant for enterprises, students and teachers.
All resources available on the website can be used and reused. It is thus possible to make a “learning path” for yourself or students within or outside the platform, as well as just cherry picking of what you find interesting.
In this way we plan to reach small tourism enterprises in addition to teachers and students of sustainable tourism development – particularly within tourism but also in other fields.
The difficulty of the resources varies.
This means that the resources available on the platform range from basic introduction material, both in film, written or other platforms, to more “hard-to-reach” academic journal articles.
