    Sexuellt trakasserad på jobbet: – en nordisk forskningsöversikt2020Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Sexuella trakasserier är ett stort samhällsproblem i arbetslivet i Norden, det har inte minst metoo-uppropen under hösten 2017 visat. Denna forskningsöversikt har sammanställts på uppdrag av Nordiska ministerrådet för jämställdhet. Syftet med översikten är att redogöra för aktuell kunskap om sexuella trakasserier i arbetslivet i Norden och att identifiera kunskapsbehov som underlag till en nordisk forskningssatsning på området. Arbetet bygger på en kartläggning av hur sexuella trakasserier tar sig olika uttryck i människors arbetsliv utifrån yrken med varierande karaktär, i professionella situationer, i kollegiala relationer och i möten med kunder, patienter och klienter. Forskningsöversikten bygger på en systematisk genomgång av forskning och annan relevant litteratur från de nordiska länderna mellan åren 2014-2019.

    Efficacy requirements for drinking water disinfectants - survey and proposal: Requirements according to Biocidal Products Regulation in relation to disinfection practices in the Nordic countries2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Drinking water disinfectants used in large water treatment plants and in associated water distribution systems are regulated by the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) 528/2012. According to the regulation, biocidal products need to be sufficiently effective. The criteria for efficacy are laid down in Guidance on the Biocidal Products Regulation, Volume II Efficacy - Assessment and Evaluation (Parts B+C). Author’s opinion is that not all the requirements in the current guidance version 3.0 (April 2018) are suitable for drinking water disinfectants as they are used in drinking water plants in the Nordic countries. The document presents reasoning behind these views and suggests modifications for the next version of the guidance.

    Rural perspectives on digital innovation: Experiences from small enterprises in the Nordic countries and Latvia2020Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Digitalisation holds considerable potential for rural areas. It offers thepromise of overcoming geographical distance, ensuring equal access toopportunity regardless of where people live. At the same time, rural andsparsely populated areas are thought to lag behind their urban counterpartswhen it comes to the provision of digital infrastructure and the developmentof digital knowledge and skills. These urban-rural disparities areoften referred to as the digital divide and can prevent rural communitiesfrom unlocking the opportunities associated with digitalisation.

    Rural perspectives on digital innovation: Experiences from small enterprises in the Nordic countries and Latvia2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic countries are already at theforefront of digitalisation in Europe.The Baltic States show a more mixed performance,but still score around or above average on theEuropean Commission’s annual measure of digitalprogress, the Digital Economy and Society Index(DESI).Despite this positive development overall,disparities remain with respect to digital developmentwithin countries; with rural and sparselypopulated areas often lagging behind on theFigure 1: Digital Economy and Society Index, 2019.Data source: European Commission, 2019f.availability of digital infrastructure and theadoption of digital technologies. As such, thisproject sought to provide a rural perspective on thesecond goal: Strengthening the competitiveness ofour enterprises through digitalisation. Specifically,it aimed to demonstrate how smart, sustainableand inclusive approaches to digitalisation can beused as a tool to increase the competitivenessand attractiveness of rural areas by exploring thechallenges and opportunities for small enterprisesin rural and sparsely populated areas. The projectwas funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers forDigitalisation (MR-Digital), the Nordic ThematicGroup for Innovative and Resilient Regions 2017-2020 and the North Atlantic Cooperation (NORA)and included a baseline study, local workshopsand a webinar series. Its primary focus was theNordic countries and Latvia; however, data is alsoprovided for Estonia and Lithuania where possible.

    Adolescent Health in the Nordic Region – Health promotion in school settings2019Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Positive health can be boosted among school students. In many parts of the Nordic region schools are implementing health promotion measures that focus on encouraging wellness – in other words, concentrating on things that make students feel good. This report shows how the wellbeing of school students is being enhanced in various school settings in the Nordic region. The importance of a user perspective also emerges.

    The report Adolescent Health in the Nordic Region – Health promotion in school settings provides a picture of how the mental health of school students has developed over time and sheds light on the most significant factors for promoting wellbeing, describing the important role that schools play.

    The experiences of the activities that the Nordic Welfare Centre describes in this report show that it is possible to improve the work environment for school students and that this need not be complicated. It is about achieving a consensus that it is important to boost students’ wellbeing.

    Finland, for example, has a research-based anti-bullying programme called KiVa. The country is also unique in the world in having health studies as a compulsory subject. At a Danish upper secondary school, both students’ mental health and results improved when grades were abandoned for the first year. Read more about this and other inspiring examples in the report.

    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet Marint Gränsforum Skagerrak syftar till att skapa förutsättning för marin näringslivsutveckling i Skagerrak.

    Projektet startade i januari 2019, vilket innebär att det varit igång i ett år när denna första delutvärdering genomfördes. Projektet som finansieras av Interreg löper 2019-2021. Projektägare är Svinesundskommittén, Viken Fylkeskommune, Göteborgs universitet/ Tjärnö marinbiologiska laboratorium och Länsstyrelsen Västra Götaland.

    Projektet Marint Gränsforum Skagerrak bygger vidare på en rad tidigare projekt i området, inklusive Interreg-projektet ”Framtiden är blå 1+2”. Det syftar till att främja utveckling av nya näringar som baseras på havets resurser och för att uppnå detta ändamål, bygga samverkan mellan näringsliv, förvaltningsorganisationer och forskning i gränsregionen.

    Projektet har under det första året kommit igång väl med olika aktiviteter, men har också viktiga utmaningar som bör hanteras för att projektet ska nå de långsiktiga målen och skapa ett friskt och produktivt Skagerrak.

    Polar Peoples in the Future: Projections of the Arctic Population2020Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This executive summary examines the projected size, composition and geographic distribution of the population of the Arctic in the future, by examining the population projections carried out by the national and regional statistical offices in each of the Arctic regions.

     

    The executive summary is based on the Nordregio Working Paper, Polar Peoples in the Future: Projections of the Arctic Populations.

     

    Population projections are an input into population policy and are used by policymakers for a variety of planning purposes. Policymakers operating at different levels in the Arctic region should be aware of these population trends and able to plan for them.

    Polar Peoples in the Future: Projections of the Arctic Populations2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Projections of the future size, composition and distribution of the populations of the Arctic states and regions are useful for policymakers for planning purposes. This paper presents and analyses the most recent population projections undertaken for the Arctic states and regions. Global population growth is projected to continue rising, from the current total of 7.4 billion to 10 billion in 2055. The population of the Arctic, as defined here, is predicted to change little, with a projected population increase of just 1%. However, there will be considerable variation in growth rates among the Arctic regions. Among the Arctic regions of Alaska, Yukon, Nunavut, Iceland, Troms, Khanty-Mansiy okrug and Chukotka, substantial population increases are projected, amounting to more than 10% over the projection period specified for each. Nordland, Finnmark, Pohjoil-Pohjanmaa (North Ostrobothnia) and Nenets autonomous okrug are projected to experience a more modest rate of growth of between 5% and 10%. The population of the Northwest Territories, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Västerbotten, Norrbotten, Lappi, Yamal-Nenets okrug, Yakutia and Kamchatka oblast are projected to remain roughly the same, neither growing nor declining by more than 5%. Kainuu in Finland, Karelia, Komi, Arkhangel'sk, Murmansk, and Magadan in Russia are projected to undergo reductions in population of more than 5% each. Common trends identified for nearly all Arctic regions in the future are aging populations, more balanced gender ratios between men and women, increased concentrations of population within larger urban settlements, and the depopulation of smaller settlements.

    Research for this article is part of a project entitled Polar Peoples: Past, Present, and Future. This is supported by a grant from the U. S. National Science Foundation, Arctic Social Sciences Program (award number PLR-1418272). I would like to thank Olivia Napper, graduate student in the Department of Geography at George Washington University, for creating the maps in this paper and for other research assistance. This project also received funding from the Nunataryuk project which was funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 773421.

    Nature interpretation in the Nordic countries: A book about experiences, learning, reflection and participation when people and nature meet2020Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Nature interpretation in the Nordic countries is a book about communication between nature interpreters and their participants in our landscapes. It´s about first hand experiences of nature and the importance of to paying attention to what is inspiring and fascinating, especially valuable or threatened. And about possibilities to reflect over the relation between human and nature.

    Educators, researchers and interpreters contribute with articles about nature interpretation it theory and practice. The book is written for everyone who is interested in how interpretation can contribute to a sustainable future, nature conservation and areas in society like public health, democracy and the right for all citizens to visit and experience nature. The purpose is to inspire nature interpreters to offer more and even better experiences and learning in the Nordic nature and cultural landscapes.
