What is our goal?
Green Ice Camera is a project initiated by an international team consisting of the media company Ice-9 (NO), Lapland University of Applied Sciences (FI), the media company WebbOn (SE) and LLC Art Media Service (RU). It emerged from a recognition of the special needs and conditions in the north of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia.
The aim of the project is to provide information, resources and tools for media producers to plan for and adapt their productions to be more considerate of vulnerable ecosystems and local communities in the Barents region. We hope that this will also be helpful for people working in other parts of the Arctic.
The project started in 2020 and was financed by Kolarctic CBC EU Finland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, The Norwegian Barents Secretariat, the SkatteFUNN scheme, the regional governments of Västerbotten and Norrbotten and the partners themselves (Lapland University of Applied Sciences, WebbOn, LLC Media Service and Ice-9).
