Nordic Archipelago Collaboration Gets Higher Status

The Nordic Council of Ministers has decided to make the Nordic archipelago cooperation a cross-border committee. The archipelago cooperation budget doubles to over 100 000€ in years 2014 2016. This affects the six archipelago municipalities of Åland, the Stockholm archipelago region, and the Åbo and Uusimaa archipelagos in Finland.

We will increase cooperation between companies and regional stakeholders and build trust, says Esther Miiros who is director of the Nordic archipelago cooperation which also received funding for a youth project, which will look at opportunities for young people to find summer jobs, and for their possibilities to move back to the archipelago as grown-ups.
