This study examines the impacts of Nordic World Ski Championships in Lahti 2017 from the perspective of the entrepreneurs in the city centre. The data were collected with the help of semi-structured interviews. Altogether 24 interviews were conducted after the Nordic World Ski Championships in the spring of 2017. The economic impacts were mostly focused on the restaurants, but also entrepreneurs from other branches recognized increases in their businesses or number of clients. There were also many entrepreneurs that did not expect any economic benefits. Nevertheless, they wanted to participate in creating an event atmosphere. The social impacts like strengthening the sense of community, increased co-operation and community pride were highlighted in the study. In organizing a sport event, the entrepreneurs are an essential stakeholder group. However, it can not be taken for granted that the entrepreneurs will participate in creating a common atmosphere during the sport event. This study highlights the role of brokering organizations in providing information, motivating, innovating and creating collaboration possibilities.</p> Satu Parjanen ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-06-26 2018-06-26 14 1 7 25 Väylänvarrella – Tieteidenvälisen dialogin soveltamisesta luontomatkailukohteiden suunnitteluun https://journal.fi/matkailututkimus/article/view/73027 <p>In this article, we describe and examine the process and outcomes of collaborative and multidisciplinary dialogue and field course project, the aim of which was to study, develop, and test multidisciplinary dialogue as a design method for nature-based tourism. We aim to increase collaboration between architecture and tourism, and thus, develop more interactive planning methods that enable us to sensitize ourselves to the relationship between human and nature. In so doing, we work towards creating a supportive environment for a design method that enhances human-nature interaction. We want to provide a basis for developing tourism concepts that focus on experiencing localities and the natural environment, and are driven by them, rather than just the needs of the tourism industry. The concept of dwelling, as interpreted by Norberg-Schulz, plays a central role in this article. It guides our examination of the process and the stages required for creating an experience-based understanding of the possibilities offered by the surrounding nature. According to our findings, time is one of the most important aspects in enabling dwelling and interaction in this kind of planning process. Our concluding remarks are that dwelling, stopping, experiencing and active interaction with diverse actors (not just human actors!) can yield more polyphonic planning processes, even though they cannot dissolve all the challenges identified in participatory planning.</p> Miia Mäkinen Outi Rantala Kaarina Tervo-Kankare ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-06-26 2018-06-26 14 1 26 41 Paikallisen ruoan matkailullinen vetovoima: Kirjallisuuskatsaus https://journal.fi/matkailututkimus/article/view/73028 <p>The popularity of food tourism – tourism in which food is a main motive for travelling – has increased. The food tourist often chooses a destination, because of local food. Not only food tourists, but also other tourists are interested in local food. By focusing on local food, a destination can differentiate itself from other destinations, gain economic advantages, maintain cultural heritage and strengthen its identity. Moreover, food tourism can contribute to extending tourist seasons. We approach local food as a social construct negotiated between various tourism actors. In this review, the focus lies in the question of why tourists are interested in consuming local food. Answers to the question have been searched through existing literature, which shows that there are many reasons for tourists’ desire to consume local food. Tourists seek for experiences, authenticity and the possibility to learn about local cultures. Through food choices tourists also construct their identities. Taste, freshness and healthiness are further reasons for consuming local food, as well as a desire to support the local economy and fulfill environmental responsibility. Social motives are also important reasons. For example, eating together with family or friends strengthens bonds between them. Local food also offers possibilities to get to know local people. The touristic attractiveness of local food is, thus, a construction of different meanings attached to the local food by tourists. This should be taken into account in destination development.</p> Monika Lüthje Ritva Saari ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-06-26 2018-06-26 14 1 42 54 Botswana tourism operators’ and policy makers’ perceptions and responses to climate change https://journal.fi/matkailututkimus/article/view/73012 Wame L.
