Lina Lindell holds a PhD in Environmental Sciences and a MSc in Aquatic and Environmental Engineering. She has over ten years of experience form 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.
Currently Dr. Lindell is engaged in developing and leading projects granted by the European Union (Interreg programme) where the state of Wellbeing and Sustainability in tourism along the coastline of the South Baltic are in focus. The active projects are "Wellbeing Tourism in the South Baltic Region – Guidelines for Good Practices & Promotion" (SB WELL) and "Circular economy tools to support innovation in green and blue tourism SMEs (CIRTOINNO)."
Chair of Steering committee SB WELL (Wellbeing Tourism in the South Baltic Region – Guidelines for Good Practices & Promotion)
Member of Steering committee CIRTOINNO (Circular economy tools to support innovation in green and blue tourism SMEs)
