* International Project  “Baltic Sea World Heritage – cooperation for prosperity”

 

The purpose of the project (2013 – 2014) was to cultivate the potential of the World Heritages Sites to contribute to regional development and growth. The World Heritage label has got high status that can be used to strengthen the attraction of the region as a whole. At the same time we can enforce a sustainable use of our World Heritage Sites. This study had three main targets. One was the attempt to form a network between the World Heritage Sites involved and their local and national networks. We also wanted to explore what common questions and common needs we have that might be solved if we work together. In the end of this preliminary study one of our targets was to formulate an application for a full scale project that could realize our ideas for every ones benefit.

 

Participants: The group consisted of six partners with different characters, nature- or cultural types, geographical position, town or countryside, big or small. Our partners were:

The Hanseatic Town of Visby, Sweden (The Project Leader)

The Naval port of Karlskrona, Sweden

The Historic Center of Riga, Latvia

Historic Centers of Stralsund and Wismar, Germany

Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork, Poland

Curonian Spit, Russia/Lithuania

Suomenlinna, Finland

 

We also had a reference group with representation of experts from the National Heritage board of Sweden, Nordic World Heritage Foundation in Oslo and the Swedish Association of World Heritages, ViS.

There are four perspectives for the project:

  1. Increasing traveling and visits to the area
  2. Increasing attractiveness for living and working all year around in the area
