Jiangxi delegation visited Polarmoss

21 September, 2016


Hailuoto – the home island of Polarmoss was proud to have visitors on a beautiful fall day in September all the way from the Jiangxi province, located in the south-east area of  the People’s Republic of China. The delegation participated an educational course arranged by the University of Oulu covering environmental issues ranging – to mention a few topics – from environmental legislation, to environmental protection, sustainable use of natural resources as well as recycling and ecological tourism. Polarmoss was selected to be an attraction due to its long term history and sustainable operations on the island of Hailuoto on the northern part of Bothnian Bay. The visit was hosted by the Chairman of the Board of Directors and Managing Director and the flow of operations was demonstrated to visitors during the day by doing a field visit in the forest and the whole day was spent under the theme “Multiple use of forestland – harvesting and refining the decorative lichen in a sustainable way – from the Nordic forests to global urban areas.”
