Selected tour operators in the Canadian territory of Nunavut will gather in February for a pilot training course in how to ensure
quality and safety in all their business operations, a topic based on one of the Sustainable Arctic Tourism Principles (link to principles).
The training is organized by SMART-project partner Nunavut Tourism (link to Nunavut Tourism?)
and will cover general as well as arctic- and Nunavut-specific topics. The course material has been developed in
cooperation with trainers and companies, but still it is a pilot test and participants will help to further improve this tool through their
feedback. Similar courses will be held in other arctic regions.
