No 17. Partnerships for the Goals

The only way to promote sustainable global development and really make a difference is by cooperation. It requires mobilization of existing resources, regardless if that means the exchange of knowledge or economical resources.

Ski Tour 2020 is a historical cooperation between to normally rivaling national ski associations. Now, we exchange knowledge and experiences across the border. It will lead to common investments that, if they are managed well, may contribute to sustainable development in the region.

Managing this project together also strengthens the bond between different organizations and parties of interest in the region, not to mention we are also making a lot of new friends.

How Ski Tour 2020 will contribute to Partnership for the goals

>> Ski Tour 2020 is a unique cooperation between the Swedish and the Norwegian National Ski Associations. Knowledge is transferred and experiences are exchanged. This will hopefully generate more cooperation across the border and inspire other nations to make the same efforts in the future. In turn, this might promote other types of partnerships and cooperation across national borders.

>> There are three local organizing committees in the different arenas, organizing the races. They represent interregional cooperation which creates mutual understanding of the different parts of the region.

>> A close cooperation between Ski Tour 2020 and their partners and between partners creates opportunities to promote future cooperation between businesses and organizations, not just within the region but outside of the same.

>> Our partners’ meetings and discussions create a network of many types of businesses which may lead to future projects. A great example of this happening was during the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships where two partners cooperated to extend the access to vehicle charging stations in the region.

>> By letting all the athletes travel together Ski Tour 2020 create a foundation for strengthening the bonds between athletes and the Ski Associations they represent.
