EALLIN Release Event with Prince Albert at Arctic Frontiers
The EALLIN Executive Summary is launched today (Monday January 19) at a special event organised by UArctic within the Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromso with HSH Prince Albert of Monaco. Prince Albert, though his foundation has been a supporter and follower of the EALLIN project since its inception. The launch will coincide with the annual Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromso and is organized in collaboration with the UArctic. EALLIN is an Arctic Council (Sustainable Development Working Group) project of the Russian Federation and Norway in partnership with the Sámi Council, UArctic and others. EALLIN is led and implemented by the Association of World Reindeer Herders in cooperation with the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry.
Many young reindeer herders who have participated in the EALLIN project over the past 3 years will be present for the launch which will be one of the key events attended by Prince Albert in his short stay in Tromso. Prince Albert will have the opportunity to dialogue with Reindeer Herding Youth at a specially constructed lavvu which has been erected for this purpose.
This report is a summary of one of the deliverables to the Arctic Council Sustainable Development Working Group project ‘EALLIN – The Voice of Reindeer Herding Youth 2012-2015’. The main goal of the project was to maintain and further develop a sustainable and resilient reindeer husbandry in the Arctic, working towards a vision of creating a better life for circumpolar reindeer herders. Through this project, over 160 youth from different reindeer herding peoples had the opportunity to meet each other, learning maybe as much about themselves in the process as they learned from their peers. This report is co-produced by the participants of 12 community-based workshops in Norway, Sweden and Russia, China and Mongolia, where herding youth were both organizers and participants.
