This workshop brings together researchers, public authorities, private companies, and NGOs interested in the economically, environmentally and socially sustainable and responsible cruise tourism in land and sea areas including Hokkaido, the Russian Far East and the Arctic, the Sea of Okhotsk, the North Pacific Ocean, the Bering Sea and the Chukchi Sea.

The topics that are to be discussed range from the environmental protection, management and regulation to social license to operate, port and tourism-related infrastructure, economic feasibility, interregional cooperation and human resource development.

It is hoped that this event will act as a forum for both knowledge production and networking. In other words, it will consolidate the existing knowledge and experience, help to identify the key challenges and opportunities that are in need of further analysis and allow relevant actors from various countries to meet each other.
