Our stories – along the Northern Lights Route

Common culture and history are strongly represented along the Northern Lights Route, combining the Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian borders. The bordering countries share a growing consciousness of common roots and identity, which is the basis for the cross-border project. At the moment, there is a route, but more activity is needed along the route. The vision is to make the North Calotte region more active, vivid and attractive with increasing business opportunities through stories and storytelling. Region-specific languages and cultures are an essential part of stories. The stories will be made visible through different forms and expressions, like Storybook, music production, short film production and oral storytelling.
