Sustainable future for Frisian folklore

10 March 2021

From master's thesis to publication: Anne-Baukje Coster (MSc Sustainable Entrepreneurship alumnus), together with Dr Maaike de Jong, Alexander Grit and Sander Vroom, wrote the article "Sustainable future for Frisian Folklore", which was published in Volkskunde.


The research, focused on SDG 11 'Sustainable cities and communities', is about the opportunities and challenges of intangible cultural heritage and tourism in Friesland. The article was established to promote cultural heritage awareness and issues related to sustainable development in the field of conservation and intangible cultural heritage.

To date, there are few researches about the indicators that are able to support the relationship between cultural heritage conservation/regeneration and sustainable development. This article intends to go beyond this limit and approach this issue in operational terms. It is focused on the role that cultural heritage can play in the sustainable development framework.
