Baltic Sea World Heritage - cooperation for (closed)

Project description

The main goal of the project was to create a network of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Baltic Sea region. The network is to be a tool for identifying and meeting common challenges and creating international collaborations. So far, there has been very little international collaboration between World Heritage Sites, since such a network was absent at the time of projects conception. The idea was that collaborative projects in this area will make the BSR more attractive, both as a tourist destination and as a place to live and work. This projects activities will consist of networking, workshops and the compilation of a report outlining common ideas and challenges. Once the network has been established, the project participants envision that the ideas generated through common workshops will form a basis of project funding applications that will be sent to EU funding programmes and Nordic Council of Ministers.
