  • Three categoriesofcultural landscape:

  • - a landscape designed and createdintentionally by man.

  • - an organicevolved landscape whichmay be a´’relict or (fossil) landscape’ or a ’continuing landscape’

  • - an ’associative cultural landscape whichmay be valuedbecauseof the religious, artistic or cultural associations of the natural element.

The naturesvalue


Holistic view

Laponiais an entirety in which the important relationship between human beings and the environment is emphasised. This entirety is an indefeasible heritage that should be passed on to coming generations. The Sami culture lives on and reindeer herding is active in the area while new Sami livelihoods are developed in harmony with the environmental and cultural values that make up the foundation for the World Heritage appointment.

The cultural landscape, national parks and nature reserves are preserved and cared for in such a way that their natural value remains, that they continue to be a positive example within cultural heritage care as well as an asset for the development of the attached municipalities. Our visitors’ experiences are enhanced through relevant information and other ventures.

Management of the worldheritage

The World Heritage Laponia is administered in such a way that its natural value is secured for future generations. The World Heritage is an asset for development. The World Heritage Administration is made up of a number of parties, all involved in the care and development of the area. The parties all enjoy a mutual respect of each others’ different conditions and the administrative work is a dynamic learning process (searvelatjna) which is constantly developed but where the value-system remains a strong foundation. Laponia tjuottjudus is a role model for the administration of cultural heritage sites.
