This week almost 40 people from 8 European border regions visit Estonia to learn more about our experience with cultural and natural heritage protection and promotion as well as tourism development in the Estonian- Latvian border region.
Besides project internal meeting field trips to naturally and cuturally rich Setomaa, Võrumaa and Mulgimaa will be organised, where we learn more on Estonia-Latvia Program funded projects on Seto-Suiti Renessaince, Livonian Culinary Heirtage, Green Railways hiking routes etc. On 6th of June thematic seminar takes place in Valga - welcomed by Valga/Valka twin town mayors. Presentation on priorities and cooperation needs of the border area, planning of the Estonia-Latvia Program new period and many others will be made.
EPICAH aims to promote the improvement of the policy instruments for cross-border cooperation processes in the natural and cultural heritage protection. The objective of the project is also to develop the management of the border by using it as a tourist attraction factor.
