Kvarken Council’s Strategy 2030

Interaction between residents


Our ongoing actions in the Interaction between residents focus area are as follows:

Allowances for grassroots cooperation in the Kvarken region

The Kvarken Council awards grants for activities that strengthen contacts between Sweden and Finland in the Kvarken region.

Status: Ongoing.

Interpretation equipment

The Kvarken Council rents out professional conference and simultaneous interpretation equipment for meetings and conferences. The service contributes to strengthening contacts and removing obstacles to cooperation caused by language barriers.

Status: Ongoing.

Culture 3.0 – Initiative

Culture as a driving force in regional development.

The Kvarken Council contributes to promoting the Culture 3.0 initiative in the region, which aims at integrating culture as an important part of the regional development work. Initially, a cooperation project has been discussed within this area.

Status: Ongoing.

Cooperation with the Nordic Association

In many ways, the Kvarken Council’s work for cross-border cooperation goes hand in hand with the Nordic Association’s Northern Perspective theme for 2023, which is “Border Regions of the Future”. The Kvarken Council and the Nordic Association in Västerbotten work together to increase cross-border cooperation between people.

Status: Ongoing.
