PROJECT'S ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT


1. Emission

The pilot recreation areas are located alongside water bodies. Introducing environmentally sustainable technologies of area management and installing corresponding equipment will obviously reduce the loading on surface waters, soil and air.

 

2. Consumption, production and energy economy

   (a)Waste reduction and recycling

Considerable measures will be taken to deal with waste disposal while concurrently developing and introducing new technologies (such as modern garbage containers). Also certain organizational schemes will be developed and applied to ensure joint responsibility for waste collection, transportation and treatment.

 

   (b) Energy conservation, efficiency and renewable sources

Proposals for energy supply in pilot areas will be made. Energy efficiency is a basic principle during energy supply scheme development for pilot areas. Available local renewable sources will be considered when developing technical energy supply solutions.

 

3. Natural conditions and communities

Creating harmonious and aesthetically pleasing landscapes and natural surroundings is one of the projects objectives.  Furthermore, the level of tourists and everyday culture will definitely be raised through the projects application of northern technologies of tourist area management. There will also be evident infrastructure improvements as it’s a key objective in the project.

 

4. People

The project will arouse incentive for better living conditions and amenities as it is aimed at increasing the level of comfort for tourists and locals in recreation areas and along highways. With safe ways of safe disposal and recycling, health issues such as poisoning, infections and common injuries from garbage, damping, e.t.c will be prevented.

 

5. Traffic

A certain long term impact, consequently the development of logistic will result from the growth in tourist flow. Public transport development may further be adjusted to increase interest on the regions.

 

6. Education and research

The project is full of ideas for developing and introducing environment related technologies. Environmental knowhow and awareness is a also incorporated as one of the main objectives of the project. The project is devoted to developing and disseminating new knowledge.
