Arctic Design responsibility

We want to help the Arctic to succeed. The endangered Arctic Owl belongs to the sensitive ecosystem of the Arctic. This elegant migratory bird is the mascot for Arctic Design Week, the world’s northernmost design event, and depicts responsible Arctic design.

Experience-rich Rovaniemi

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.

The Hometown of Santa Claus

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.

Ounasvaara

Ounasvaara is a versatile centre for sports. A skiing centre, golf course, wellbeing centre, and a large nature trail network can be found close to the town centre. Rovaniemi has been awarded the title of European City of Sport 2020.

Arctic Circle 70 Years

The Arctic Circle and the Santa Claus Village form an internationally renowned destination that welcomes over half a million visitors each year. 2020 is the 70th Anniversary Year for the Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi.

Organisers

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.

City of Rovaniemi

Rovaniemi is an Arctic capital full of life and a pioneer in the circular economy. Business Rovaniemi is responsible for the practical arrangements.

Lapland University Consortium

Lapland University Consortium (LUC) is a nationally and internationally leading player in Arctic research and expertise, and a pioneering and leading university of art and design.

Arctic Centre

The Arctic Centre of the University of Lapland promotes understanding of the Arctic by combining Arctic research with communication of information.
