Currently Dr. Lindell is engaged in developing and leading EU-projects (Interreg programme and EUniWell) where the state of wellbeing and sustainability in tourism along the coastline of the South Baltic as well as health and life quality are in focus. Active projects are for Interreg "Wellbeing Tourism in the South Baltic Region – Guidelines for Good Practices & Promotion" (SB WELL), "Time Machine" on "Innovative communication of sacred places for attractive tourism in the Baltic region", and for EUniWell Advancing understanding of well-being tourism, drawing upon the European biocultural heritage, and The mental health symposium: exploring and enhancing mental health initiatives and resources. Recently finalized is for Interreg "Circular economy tools to support innovation in green and blue tourism SMEs (CIRTOINNO)." For more information on Wellbeing tourism and Home of Wellbeing see our crossborder network of tourism companies here: www.wellbeingtourism.com.
Lindell holds a PhD in Environmental Sciences incl. Env. Psychology, and a MSc in Aquatic and Environmental Engineering. She has over ten years of experience from working with applied hydrochemistry, applied geochemistry and environmental psychology in the Amazon basin. Focus of her work has been to explore the effects on the environment caused by deforestation and its consequences on the life quality of the rural population of farmers. She has also contributed to documentation of the cultural and natural heritage of the upper Amazon in a collaboration with the Chicago field museum, USA.
