This project will underline the importance of movement in understanding the mountain landscape. The Swedish mountain range is a landscape of movement. It has been shaped by Sami life for centuries, but also through hunting, fishing, outdoor life, tourism, sports, science.

The movement heritage, in terms of paths, skiing tracks, hiking trails etc. has shaped the understaning of the mountain landscape. The project will investigate how these landscapes of movement can contribute to a sustainable development in the mountain landscape.
