In the Nordic countries, the main travel motivation of winter tourists is snow-based winter sport activities in “Winter Wonderland". More recently, however, snow based winter tourism is under pressure from many directions. Downhill skiing has entered a phase of stagnation in many countries. The typical downhill skiing tourist has become older. Generally, there is a change in leisure preferences towards city tourism or other types of snow-based activities such as snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing and ski mountaineering and backcountry skiing. Global warming also threatens traditional winter resorts, especially in low elevation and low latitude areas. Because of the latter, but despite the former, there are still heavy investments in snow-making facilities since managers live in the hope that if there is snow there are customers. What does research say about this? Despite the growing literature, still little is known about climate change impacts, vulnerability and the role and effects of adaptation and mitigation measures.

Report of the German Advisory Council on Global Change

Humanity on the move:

Unlocking the transformative power of cities

German Advisory Council on Global Change

 The momentum of urbanization and its impacts are so massive that we must face up to this trend. In view of the existing cognitive, technical, economic and institutional path dependencies, a policy of business as usual – i.e. an unstructured, quasi-automatic urbanization – would lead to a non-sustainable ‘world cities society’. Only if cities and urban societies are sufficiently empowered can they make use of the opportunities for sustainability and successfully follow the urban transformation pathways. The success or failure of the Great Transformation will be decided in the cities. The WBGU discusses the relevant conditions for the success of this transformation in this report.
