Outi Rantala is a Professor at the University of Lapland.

Tourism cannot be isolated from the climate emergency, and more generally, from the rising consciousness that humans are part of the Earth

Rethinking tourism

Outi Rantala’s project as Arctic Five Chair seeks to answer the research question of how we should (re)think, examine and teach tourism in the era of climate emergency – and in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project envisions collaboratively what type of future tourism research and education is needed in the Arctic.
