INTERREG BOTNIA-ATLANTICA AND INTERREG NORD 2014-2020 46 Helpingmore people to discover a unique natural WorldHeritage Site More visitors. Increased understanding for the values of the World Heritage Site. And better knowledge for a sustainable use of natural and cultural heritage. The Lystra project succeeded in fulfilling all three goals to develop the Word Heritage Site High Coast and Kvarken Archipelago. – I think we have reached the highest level of cooperation between Sweden and Finland. We solve problems together, which is a must when managing a common World Heritage site, says project manager Malin Henriksson. The High Coast and the Kvarken Archipelago show how ice age and land uplift have affected both the natural and cultural landscape for thousands of years. Therefore, the area has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is managed jointly by Metsähallitus Parks & Wildlife in Finland and the County Administrative Board of Västernorrland, Sweden. The idea of the Lystra project was that Sweden and Finland would work together to further develop the World Heritage Site High Coast and Kvarken Archipelago and to increase the area's accessibility and attractiveness for residents, entrepreneurs, and visitors.
