The strategic goal of ArcticHubs is to develop sustainable, solution-oriented responses for the reconciliation of competing livelihoods and land-use modes in Arctic hubs and their surroundings, whilst respecting the needs and cultures of local populations, e.g. Sámi in Fennoscandia.

Key industrial activities with high societal and economic value—such as mining, fish farming, tourism and forestry—will be analysed in terms of their consequences on ecosystem services and well-being of local communities.
