Project - Creating jobs through regional cooperation: development of trans-border (PL-ROS-LT) natural area Vistynets Lake/Rominten Forest

Description


Description: The project addresses the issues of development of cross-border areas for sustainable tourism as well as fostering labour market related activities in the cross-border context in the EUSBSR. The Rominten Forest/Vistynets Lake area in the South-Eastern Baltic Area is the unique natural complex where the borders of three countries (Russia, Poland and Lithuania) meet. There are many challenging issues to be considered in this area: limited access due to the border, visa regime and communication infrastructure, unemployment and low living standards of local residents. All this leads to social-economic underdevelopment and abandonment. The project is aimed to develop a network of support for local communities which would help to increase employment in the rural areas connected with the nature reserves. The network works through resource centres on all three sides of the area based on an interdisciplinary approach. The network will be sustainable due to permanent interdisciplinary exchange and a flow of ideas and people. It will encourage local population to learn new skills and crafts, to keep alive old traditions of the area, to introduce new creative ideas and to attract visitors. The flagship involves partners from Lithuania, Poland and Russia.
