Abstract [en]

The Lofoten Islands have witnessed a rise in cruise tourism in recent years, driven primarily by an increasing number of medium-sized cruise ships and expedition vessels. The destination comprises three established cruise harbors in Leknes, Svolvær, and Reine, in addition to other harbors that have been welcoming smaller expedition vessels. To contribute to the ongoing discussions about sustainable cruise tourism on the Lofoten Islands, we look into the practices associated with cruise-related activities, offering a detailed and nuanced understanding of how cruising is executed, including its opportunities and challenges.We have identified specific practices associated with cruise tourism (i.e., ship handling, planning and preparation, tourist hosting, and governance) and have analyzed how these practices are executed, coordinated, and adapted by different stakeholders (e.g., harbor authorities, tour operators, guides, attractions, restaurants, and local communities).Moreover, the report sheds light on the influence of factors such as weather conditions, seasonality, power dynamics, environmental impacts, and carrying capacity on the development of local cruise tourism.Our findings suggest that to improve sustainability of cruise tourism there is a need to leveragelocal enforceability, collaborate with cruise operators, establish realistic requirements to cruise operators, adjust to local norms and guidelines, and address concerns of local carryingcapacity. Additionally, the report puts forth tools and measures for the governance of cruise tourism, including economic incentives, tourist taxes, environmental regulations, local networks, and information dissemination. In conclusion, we underscore the need forstakeholders to take into account the complexity of interconnected practices, and advocate for the establishment of novel local approaches to balance between development and sustainability interests when developing the local tourism industry on the Lofoten Islands.

Abstract [en]

This conceptual paper argues that there are unrealized benefits from a cross-fertilization between research on sustainable tourism and sustainability transitions studies. With the aim to stimulate such cross-fertilization, the paper identifies three contemporary streams in sustainability transitions studies that are particularly relevant for sustainable tourism: deep transitions, transitions in practice, and the geography of transitions. These three streams present complementary perspectives, which can help reach a more nuanced understanding of transition processes in the tourism sector. The paper concludes that while research on sustainable tourism can benefit from theories, concepts, and frameworks from research on sustainability transitions, research on sustainable tourism can support further conceptual developments in sustainability transitions studies.

Abstract [en]

This narrative review article contributes to the discussion on destination sustainability by focusing on cruise tourism practices. Cruise tourism is a complex industry, particularly from a destination perspective. There have been many calls for cruise tourism to become more sustainable for destinations but little consensus about what this means, or how it could be achieved. The aim of this article is to review the literature on cruise tourism destinations and to unpack the ways in which sustainability issues are framed at destination level. We have reviewed 98 peer-reviewed empirical journal articles (2015–2022). The article shows how the research literature on cruise tourism and sustainability issues has evolved over 7 years, which aspects of sustainability are considered to be most important and/or problematic and what solutions are suggested to improve the sustainability of cruise tourism. We develop three critical avenues towards sustainable cruise destinations: 1) from specific outcomes to the interconnectedness of desired practices, 2) alternatives to the growth paradigm, and 3) governing for coexistence and the commons. These critical avenues are based on the discussion of what sustainability means for cruise destinations, and translates these into pathways of future research.

Abstract [en]

The case method provides entrepreneurship educators with great potential to be entrepreneurial and to think outside the box when adjusting the case method for increased entrepreneurial learning. This chapter provides the theoretical background of case-based entrepreneurship education and a debate on context in case teaching in general and the Nordic countries in particular. Further the chapter provides a synopsis and reflections of how the chapters in this book discuss the design and utilization of cases through 2 parts. Part 1 includes theoretical perspectives, discussions, and practical procedures on how the case method and case activities can be reframed and approached in entrepreneurship education in general and for experiential learning in particular. Part 2 contributes with a collection of Nordic entrepreneurship cases with accompanying teaching notes. We believe that this book is of great inspiration for entrepreneurship educators wanting to use the case method in their teaching.

Abstract [en]

This chapter presents 'utopia realizing', a novel methodology to teach sustainable entrepreneurship. The methodology combines entrepreneurship and sustainability teaching tools through utilizing a live case method along four different phases of case activities. The novel aspect of this methodology is that students first create a sustainable utopia before the actual live case is introduced. Students identify and develop sustainable opportunities within the defined utopia based on the premises of the live case. Last, students work on realizing their sustainable opportunity by developing a plan for resource mobilization and assessing the sustainability of the opportunity concept. We argue that utilizing utopia in case-based teaching methods in entrepreneurship education can be an attractive alternative to more commonly used approaches that focus on problems or challenges case owners face, and thus is a way to reframe the method for teaching sustainable entrepreneurship.

Abstract [en]

This book explores how entrepreneurship can be taught through case studies, arguing that entrepreneurship education needs specific cases and case methods to teach students entrepreneurial skills and mindsets. Providing unique perspectives and examples on how case teaching can be applied in entrepreneurship education, the book draws together a wide range of real-life case studies.

Informing and inspiring entrepreneurship educators, Part I employs theoretical perspectives and practical procedures related to case teaching in entrepreneurship education. Novel and innovative case methods for entrepreneurship education are explored as well as the theoretical foundations of case-based entrepreneurship education. Part II offers 15 Nordic case studies divided into three main groups relating to becoming an entrepreneur, early-phase venture creation, and acting entrepreneurially in established organisations.

Supplemented by online teaching notes, this thought-provoking book will be a valuable resource for entrepreneurship educators at higher education institutions. Questions and activities included in the case studies will also be useful for students with an interest in entrepreneurship.

Abstract [en]

Norwegian salmon is famous around the world. But less is known about the entrepreneurial fish farmers producing this commodity. This teaching case tells the story of Kvar√∏y Fiskeoppdrett, a small family-owned fish farmer located on a remote island in Northern Norway, who decided to become the world's most sustainable fish farmer. The case provides insights into the history of the firm with a focus on entrepreneurial decisions made and actions taken on their way to becoming more sustainable. The case draws on several educational moments, and the case activities build on game-based learning to develop skills and mindset to act entrepreneurially for a sustainable future. Because of the flexibility of the case activity, the case can be adjusted and used as an introductory exercise to entrepreneurship as well as for more advanced students on different levels.
