Working packages

WP 1: Destination Development
Working package leader: Norrøn
The aim is to create the basis for the development of sustainable tourism in the two parks. Based on site-specific potentials and narratives, an identity for each park will be defined and described in two prospects and these identities will be used as basis for proposals to develop new facilities and attractions.

WP 2: Product Development
Working package leader: Roskilde University
Students from the Guide Diploma Program (RUC) and the Communication of Nature and Culture Program (KU) will receive training in urban ecotourism and entrepreneurship and the ability to combine these two into tour products. A training program in urban ecotourism and entrepreneurship will be developed to guides, who already have their own guide business. It will include the guide’s role as agents of change and co-involment of tourists in sustainability.

WP 3: A scalable model:
Working package leader: University of Copenhagen 
WP 3 establishes a shared conceptual frame of Urban Eco-Tourism and provides an overall systematic evaluation of the WPs and project processes and products based on interviews, surveys and participant observations. The combination of identity analyses and architectural creativity with guide training and development of new tour products educating the travelers is highly innovative.

WP 4: Dissemination and networking
Working package leader: Roskilde University
The overall aim of WP 4 is to communicate the prospect and relevance of the project and establish a network of relevant investors and stakeholders who are willing to invest in the prospect and implement the blue print.
