LIVIND project supports living heritage in Northern Europe

The new project “LIVIND – Creative and living cultural heritage as a resource for the Northern Dimension region” supports living heritage in Northern Europe. The project brings together ten countries from Northern Europe, as well as the Nordic autonomous regions and the Saami area.

Living heritage holds many possibilities for sustainable and ethical practices that support the livelihoods and wellbeing of communities. Led by the Finnish Heritage Agency, the project concentrates on recognising the practical ways living heritage can advantage tourism, services and several other practices in sustainable ways. The new project collects good practices and strengthens cooperation between different actors across the Northern Dimension region.

Geographically, the project will pursue the objectives of the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture Strategy 2021–2024 by strengthening the networks and cross-border cooperation in the region. The Northern Dimension Institute is a project partner in the LIVIND communication activities.

The first LIVIND webinar will be held on 29 November 2021

In the opening webinar, you will hear more about the LIVIND project and, with case examples from around the Northern Dimension region, about how living heritage and sustainability are linked together. In the workshops, you can choose a theme of sustainability that interests you most and share your experiences with colleagues from the region. Please sign up by 23 November.
