In February, HUMAK University of Applied Sciences in Finland, was the first member to receive from ENCATC the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 label.
In May 2018 the “Lights on!” project will launch a new mobile game with the aim to use augmented reality and connect 8 heritage sites in Finland and Estonia.
From May to September 2018, a series of events will be organised in both countries to shed light on the enchanting shared past of the North-Eastern Baltic Sea. The project encourages people to visit spectacular ruins, fortresses, hill forts and parks in both countries, and improves their quality as tourist destinations.
The stories of these sites will illustrate how domestic and foreign powers and political intrigues have shaped Estonia and Finland throughout centuries. All of them have also inspired an abundance of tales, legends and myths. Now these stories will come alive and can be experienced in modern and participatory ways.
