Exploring Vega Island – World Heritage Area

When the UNESCO world heritage committee processed the nomination of Vega Island at its meeting in China on 1 July 2004, it justified its decision to award world heritage status as follows:

“Vega Island demonstrates how generations of fishermen and farmers over the past 1,500 years have maintained a sustainable way of life in hard conditions close to the Arctic Circle, a way of life-based on the now unique tradition of eider farming. The status also recognizes the women’s contribution to the down processing work.”
