The Creative Potential of the North. What is Needed to Make the Arctic Regions Attractive for Living and Creativity?
6 September 2022
13:00—14:00
Russia is a rich country with a well-developed industrial sector, vast natural resources, and an enormous territory. But its greatest value is the creative energy of its inhabitants. The concept of a ‘creative city’ infers that not only a metropolis, but also a remote region, small town, or rural settlement can become creative. Creating an environment for the education of professional specialists at the local level, as well as comfortable and attractive infrastructure for living, will help to put people’s innovative, entrepreneurial, and socio-cultural initiatives into action. The proper use of local residents’ creative energy creates an atmosphere that makes the city an attractive place to live and for tourism.
● What needs to be done to make the North and the Arctic appealing places for living and attract people? What role does the region’s image play in attracting and retaining human resources and how can it be improved?
● What kind of infrastructure is needed to keep young people in the northern regions? Why do cities need communities and how can creative industries help create them?
● What are the best practices for training and attracting professional skilled workers to the regions? What initial results have creative industries colleges shown?
● What benefits are there from involving third sector players, such as funds and responsible companies, in the integrated social development of territories?
