Our European Cooperation Day walks

Monday, November 2, 2020 - 09:42
Our European Cooperation Day celebration this year involved walking along the trails developed by Central Baltic projects.
In Estonia and Sweden we walked alongside routes in cooperation with the project Lakesperince, in Finland we, in collaboration with Urban Eco Islands, visited the island of Vasikkasaari whilst in Latvia we hiked with project Forest Trail as a part of the Lampa conversation festival. Finally on the Åland islands we walked on Kökar a part of the pilgrimage route of project St Olav Waterway. To involve local inhabitants in the walks and at the same time to promote our project paths notwithstanding the COVID_19 restrictions, we launched a campaign on Instagram asking local inhabitants to send us photos of their walks under the hashtags: #ECDay2020, #Interreg30 and #CentralBaltic.
After all the walks took place, we met up in a digital coffee room and invited those who participated in the Instagram campaign and talked about our experiences during the walks. After the coffee, we drew ten winners for our Instagram photo competition. You can find the full video recording here.

If you want to see the videos from our walks, we have some avaialble for EstoniaÅlandSweden and Finland. Another campaign about our European Cooperation Day walks will coming up soon.
