#S69 Creating jobs through regional cooperation: development of trans-border (PL-RUS-LT) natural area Vistynets Lake/ Rominten Forest (ROMINT)

Horizontal Action Neighbours – To increase the co-operation with neighbouring countries to tackle joint challenges in the Baltic Sea region


The Rominten Forest/ Vistynets Lake area is a unique natural complex where the borders of three countries (Russia, Poland and Lithuania) meet. Due to its specific location, there are many challenging issues to be considered in this area: visas, limited access due to the border regime and communication structure, unemployment and low living standards of local residents. This project will address these issues and will facilitate development of a network of three centres which will help to increase employment, and fight exclusion and poverty in the rural areas.

 

Seed money project partnership:

  • Romincka Forest Fund (PL)
  • Non-governmental agency for support of cultural initiatives "Tranzit" (RU)
  • Administration of the Regional Park Vistytis (LT)
  • Kaliningrad regional NGO "Museum for History and Ecology 'Vistynetsky'" (RU)
