 svenskflagTechnical experts and coordinators from the South Baltic Four Corners met in Sweden to finalise the Strategic Framework and coordinate the work plans. The strategic direction, the vision and the goals for the Sustainable Destination have been agreed. The overall vision is to work toward the achievement of South Baltic Four Corners as the most sustainable destination in Europe. The goal is 10% increased tourists in and around the small harbours. The sharing of a common vision and an agreed goal is a great step forward to secure successful implementation of the many activities. The implementation of activities will centre around the small harbours. Visitors will arrive in the small harbours from the sea, with cars, hiking or biking. They will use the small harbours as the departure point for exploring the heritage and planning the on-ward journey.

Management meeting in Ystad December 2008

The Four Corners partners met in Ystad before christmas. The purpose of the meeting was partly to share the information about South Baltic Project reporting and financial reporting based on the knowledge input from Gdansk. The second part of the meeting focused on the joint development of a strategic frame to guide the work. While the project application includes outputs to be achieved then these outputs needs to be translated into a broader vision - how does the project fit into the broader perspective of the Four Corner collaboration. The outputs also needed to be specified into practical coordinated work plans. This meeting turned out to be essential for the united understanding of the purpose of the project. Lots of laughs were enjoyed while we realised how words are interpreted differently. The meeting was a great beginning to a longer strategic work process.
