The project goal was to improve the ecological situation in the Murmansk region – an important area for the Sámi people. The Sámi community in the Russian Federation identified a need to develop and implement a project to clean-up waste in the Murmansk region in the areas where the Sámi people live and practice their traditional lifestyle.
An important element of the clean-up project was that it used a community-based approach. Including local Sámi people was crucial for the project to be successful. Only with their involvement the project team was able to identify priority sites for the clean-up.
