“Different Nations – Shared Experiences” project
Cohesion between and within nations is a cornerstone of the European Union. The Baltic Sea Region was for centuries united by a common body of water, similar climate and shared historical developments until being divided by the Iron Curtain. Today, differences in our understanding of the past inhibit us from laying a foundation for a jointly perceived Baltic Sea region.
The project “Different Nations – Shared Experiences” took on the task of laying this foundation for Estonia, Latvia, Finland, and Sweden through researching regional history awareness and educational practices, developing educational methods and organising events to raise thematic awareness.
The activities were executed by the Unitas Foundation (Lead Partner), the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia (Project Partner) and the Estonian, Latvia, Swedish and Finnish history and civic education teachers associations (affiliated partners).
The project was primarily financed by the Central-Baltic Interreg IV A Programe 2007-2013.
