rESPONSIBILITY OF ARCTIC DESIGN
We are concerned about the Arctic region. Globally.
We want to help the Arctic region to succeed, and this is why we strive to promote sustainable development and ethically produced Arctic design.
The endangered Arctic Snowy Owl belongs to the sensitive ecosystem of the Arctic. This beautiful migratory owl is the symbol for the Arctic Design week, the world’s northernmost design event. It conveys the message of wise and responsible Arctic design that appreciates practicality.
Lapland’s distinct seasons and its Arctic capital of Rovaniemi are full of unique experiences – perfectly designed for those experiencing the experience. Thanks to Ounasvaara, this international university town is also a centre for sports travel.
Santa Claus greets visitors every day of the year in Rovaniemi. Santa’s Rovaniemi residence is located in the Santa Claus Village on the Arctic Circle. Each year, Santa Claus receives over half a million letters from all over the world, and he also replies to many.
The main organisers of Arctic Design Week are the City of Rovaniemi, Business Rovaniemi and the Lapland University Consortium (Faculty of Art and Design of the University of Lapland, Lapland University of Applied Sciences) and partners including The Arctic Centre and Science Centre Pilke.
