Abstract [en]

This project investigates conflicts over land use in the context of the Jämtland mountain region, Sweden where tensions due to snowmobiling and free riding are increasing. The study takes a planning and management perspective.

The study consists of a web based survey that generated responses from 862 snowmobilers in the region in 2015. Organizations and snowmobile clubs distributed the survey through social media. In 2015, twelve semi-structured interviews were carried out with fifteen representatives from the public sector and the tourism industry. Moreover in 2018, additional interviews will be conducted. The study is also based on information found on webpages and in local media.

There has been a new development of snowmobile activities for planning and management to handle in the Swedish mountains, not least in terms of conflicts but also because of security issues e.g. avalanches. One can get a deeper understanding of the conflicts and the reasons behind them. Nevertheless, more knowledge is needed about the different strategies of planners, managers and other stakeholders as well about the users and the underlying social motives behind their attitudes and activities. To handle conflicts related to snowmobiling and free riding will require continued dialogue, negotiation and further research.

Abstract [en]

Practically all Swedes enjoy being out in nature and engaging in outdoor recreation activities. An important reason behind this is that they benefit from the Swedish Public Right of Access (Allemansrätten). Outdoor recreation is highlighted as a major contributor to good health, leads to a higher level of understanding of nature in an urban society, and can function as a means of integration and sustainable development. However, society and our constant search for new experiences are changing as does the practice of outdoor recreation.

It is of interest to identify how different users participate in outdoor recreation and use nature. Previous studies show that outdoor recreation often is conducted close to where we live. Planning and management, along with information, are vital components leading to the accessibility and development of outdoor recreation. Accessibility for outdoor recreation relate to both physical and socio-economic conditions. Today, outdoor recreation for urban dwellers is highly dependent on access to natural areas close to cities, yet open spaces are increasingly under threat due to urban growth and development density. The Public Right of Access places new demands on future planning and management, for example in order to prevent conflicts with private landowners as there may be increased pressure on specific natural areas.

The above issues are analyzed from the results of an online survey conducted in autumn 2016. The survey was sent to 3,000 randomly selected residents in Östersund, Sweden (response rate 32%). Additionally, municipal planning documents are examined. The results show that the respondents do not consider that access to nature is constrained. Rather they feel they lack the time to make full use of this accessibility. They also express a need for more information about nature areas. The results also show that those with higher education and higher income value outdoor recreation higher, but that they also have less time.

Abstract [en]

The language is central to all learning in higher education, such as analytical independence, critical thinking and theoretical understanding. Many university students no longer master the language tools required, according to numerous representatives of the university world. The issue of students’ knowledge of the Swedish language is a topic of discussion on the higher education agenda. Apart from poor spelling and grammar, students’ problems with analyses and deeper understanding are worrying. However, more support in scientific thinking and writing in education may help to overcome language problems. Another important issue for language development is reading skills – for both studies and/or pleasure. To integrate academic writing and exercises in all teaching at the undergraduate level is undeniably one means for improvement. University studies include important social and academic codes that might be difficult to understand, especially for students from non-academic homes. By developing reading and writing skills, students will also overcome different barriers.

In the bachelor programme: Tourism and destination development, at Mid Sweden University, the students’ academic writing and reading is of particular interest. In this paper, the possibilities of improvements of the students’ academic writing with concrete examples from our tourism programme is discussed, but also highlight the challenges teachers face and the need of central support from the university. Using concrete examples (e.g. examinations and exercises), the discussion will further expand on issues regarding the language’s significance for the individual and society.

Abstract [sv]

Rapporten "Dagens miljömål och framtidens fjällupplevelser – Iakttagelser av aktivitetsmönster, landskapsrelationer och kommunikationsformer" ger inledningsvis en bakgrund till fjällupplevelser och en genomgång av de metoder som använts i projektet. Därefter följer en beskrivning av de förändringar forskarna anser kunna se i de olika datamaterial som samlats in, följt av en diskussion av dagens miljökvalitetsmål i förhållande till framtidens fjällupplevelser.

Abstract [sv]

Fjällen används i samband med en mängd olika aktiviteter, som i sin tur hela tiden förändras och utvecklas. I fjällen ska många olika hänsyn tas och inte sällan uppstår målkonflikter mellan olika värden, upplevelser och intressen. Det kan exempelvis uppstå konflikter mellan friluftsliv, rennäring, naturbevarande och energiproduktion eller mellan grupper av friluftslivsaktiviteter. I denna rapport redovisar vi resultaten från ett forskningsprojekt där vi har undersökt hur svenska aktörer med olika intressen i mark- och resursanvändning upplever olika konflikter, orsaker bakom konflikter och vilka möjligheter som finns att komma bortom konflikter i planering, skötsel och användning av fjällområden. Konflikter mellan olika aktörer har en negativ påverkan på utveckling och förvaltning, vilket går emot de uttalade syftena med det nationella miljömålet Storslagna fjäll om att värna sociala och ekologiska värden.

Abstract [en]

Systematically collected information on outdoor recreation participation, motives and behaviors can improve recreation opportunities and reduce the risk of user conflicts. There are many uses of this type of information for managers of recreational areas including analyses of environmental, social and economic impacts, development of infrastructure, and marketing to appropriate audiences. One key component in building this knowledge is the application of visitor monitoring. This study takes an exploratory approach by analyzing managers' experiences on different on-site monitoring methods at 12 recreational areas in Sweden. Results show that knowledge of these methods and their use are strongly linked to individual managers' skills and competence. Contemporary changes in recreation behavior calls for more innovative monitoring approaches, but managers included in this study primarily work with rather traditional methods, which is likely representative of the overall situation in Sweden. Networking, educational programs and closer collaborations with universities could facilitate some of the challenges identified.

Management implications

● The study showed the relevance of improved visitor monitoring practices, and tailor-made monitoring guidelines, based on actual use and experience-based data.

● Adequate visitor monitoring practices:- help to better incorporate recreation activities and values in natural resource management decisions,

● increase the awareness of possible conflicts between recreational and other resource users,

● show the possible need for increased management capacity, additional training or new ways of visitor management and provide a better foundation for decision making.
