Snowchange is an advisory partner in CHERISH – an Interreg project that aims at improving regional development policies protecting and promoting cultural heritage in fishing communities in order to boost attractiveness of these regions.
Our specific mandate over 2018-2020 participation is to facilitate and support co-learning of traditional ecological knowledge – TEK between the regions and organisations involved. Snowchange staff members Chris Madine and Kaisu Mustonen are the primary staff in this project which is coordinated by the Municipality of Middelburg in Netherlands. All in all the CHERISH project budget is 1.5 million €.
In 2018 we have organised the TEK Workshop in Tornio, Finland with excursions out to the Perämeri Marine National Park and will release the TEK Report in late 2018 based on the results of the workshop. Stay tuned for more updates here!
