Lofoten Conference 2023

23 February 2023

Together with the business community, tourism and communes across Lofoten, Museum Nord participated in this year’s Lofoten conference. This year, the focus was on the green transition and regional development.

The days were packed with exciting seminars about the future, circular economy, the green shift and professional replenishment. Key questions raised during the conference were about what choices we must make today in order for Lofoten to be an attractive place to live, work and visit in the future. Young people from Lofoten Youth Council held a fantastic lecture and shared with us what is important for young people, in order for Lofoten to be an attractive place to live in the future. Public transport, universal design, sustainability and youth clubs were important items on their agenda.

Tourism is central to all the important issues raised during the conference, and together we want to lead by example both when it comes to the green transition, but also how we can contribute to creating a Lofoten we want to live in and others want to visit.
