Who is participating in DART?

Partners from 13 European Regions are contributing to DART. All partners will be involved in the project implementation and preparation of the events. The programme is not to be seen as a one-way exchange from advanced to less experienced regions, especially not from old to new member states of the European Union, since all partners can contribute with their own good examples. This broad knowledge and the interest of all partners to learn from one other enables a transfer of good practices and generates a win-win situation for all partners.

In Finland the declining and ageing society is usually seen as a serious problem with negative consequences. Therefore a strong change in attitudes is needed. When facing challenges, the North Karelia has already several times assumed the role of forerunner. Once again we need to review new structures, models and tools, as well as find innovative solutions aiming to improve tomorrow's prerequisite for living and working in our region. The main concern of the DART project is highly topical and any outcomes of fruitful European collaboration are warmly welcomed.
