DefenceArch - Footprints of Defence in the Archipelago

The objectives of the project:

The overall objective is to develop existing, though almost untapped defence historical resources of the Gålö seal farm, the Bomarsund fortress, the southern cape of Örö and Korpoström into appealing and sustainable destinations by increasing the awareness and experience value. There are three sub-objectives:

1. The experience value will be improved by creating story-rich and informative digital content to illustrate the destinations.

2. The development will be supported by resolving shortages in infrastructure, supply chain and overall attraction management.

 3. The aspects of cultural, ecological, economic and social sustainability in insular tourism are analyzed, and embedded in the actions and outputs of the project in order to increase the understanding of sustainability among visitors, locals, companies, tourism developers and public actors.
