GRANT AVAILABLE FOR ARCTIC TOURISM BUSINESS WITH A HEART FOR CONSERVATION


Arctic tourism businesses, tourism associations or multi-stakeholder groups are invited to apply for the “WWF Arctic Tourism & Conservation Grant 2006”. The WWF Arctic Tourism & Conservation Grant provides start-up funding of up to 10 000 Swiss francs for projects which establish or improve links between tourism and arctic conservation.

In order to be eligible, the grant-seeking project must

  • demonstrate, create or improve benefits from tourism towards arctic conservation
  • be sustainable (be environmental-friendly, and – where applicable – socially responsible and economical viable)
  • address a conservation concern
  • have an educational component
  • be located in the northern regions of the arctic countries.

The deadline for the application is December 16, 2006, and applications should be submitted in English, but exemptions can be made on request.

For more information and to apply for the grant, go to www.panda.org/arctic/tourism or contact Miriam Geitz (mgeitz@wwf.no) at the WWF International Arctic Programme.
