Shape Newsletter 2/2018

After a year of activity, SHAPE is very much moving forward and evolving in positive directions. Project partners in each of our SHAs have organized meetings with stakeholders to map natural and cultural heritage assets and identify possible joint initiatives.

There has been strong interest in these meetings; about 200 people have attended them. Stakeholders have used a range of different methods for mapping assets, which will all be included in our e-service, to be launched later this year. The initiatives that have emerged from the lively discussion in the meetings fall into five main themes: trails, branding, training (especially young people), local products (in particular, those made from wool), and wildlife watching. These initiatives will be developed over the next year and also form the basis of learning journeys next spring and summer. Read more about project ongoing project activities, Newsletter 2/2018
