Project summary: 

A TNC cooperation project between Estonia, Latvia, and Northern Ireland and Finland (lead partner).  All partner areas have long coastlines, and each was actively looking at ways of how to find a balance between protecting the environment and opening up their areas to tourists in a sustainable way. The project included some joint aspects – international study trips and videos – but ‘in country’ investments were kept separate.
The activities implemented by the Estonian LAG included transnational study trips to project partners, marketing the coastal area of North Western Estonia. This included producing videos of coastal areas, purchasing and installing small equipment (information stands, trash bins, benches etc) to coastal areas.

Project results: 

158 km of the Baltic Coastal Hiking route in North Western Estonia has been marked both on the ground and in digital files making it accessible to hikers. 
Tourist information about the North Western Estonia area is presented on the Baltic Coastal Hiking website and promotional materials were published.
7700 households in Western Harju municipality were informed about nature friendly recreation opportunities in their region.
