Causeway partners with Kenozero 7 July 2017

Giant’s Causeway partners with aspiring World Heritage Site in Russia

 

CCGHT1

 

The Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) and the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast World Heritage Site Steering Group is actively reaching out and assisting other partners across the globe in achieving UNESCO World Heritage status. The latest area to benefit from this advice and support is Kenozero National Park in the Russian North.

Kenozero National Park in the Arkhangelsk region of Russia became a Federal National Park in 1991. Over the last 26 years the national park authority has provided support to restore and maintain the area’s spectacular wooden architecture and traditional Russian ways of life, culture and traditions. Now in 2017 the park aspires to obtain UNESCO World Heritage status for this small, beautiful and mysterious part of the world’s largest country.

CCGHT is currently leading a 3–year Northern Peripheries and Arctic Region project known as ‘Drifting Apart’. This project connects partner organisations across NW Europe, Canada and Russia, and encourages them to explore their shared geological and cultural heritage.

From the 11th to the 25th June 2017, Andrew Bratton and Nikki Maguire from CCGHT travelled to Onega Pomorie and Kenozero National Parks to assist in 360–degree filming of remote local communities and sites of geological and cultural heritage interest. As part of this visit Andrew and Nikki took the opportunity to provide advice on Kenozero’s application for UNESCO World Heritage Status. At a special meeting in Vershinino Village’s new ‘EcoClassroom’ (funded through Drifting Apart), Nikki and Andrew presented Deputy Director of Development Alexandra Yakovleva, with a copy of the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast World Heritage Site Management and Action Plan.

Drifting Apart Project Manager Andrew Bratton said of the occasion “It was fantastic to visit ‘Testament of Kenozero Lake – Aspiring World Heritage Site’ and to provide assistance for their application process for World Heritage status. It is extremely important to recognise how the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast World Heritage Steering Group provides an exemplary model for partnership management of World Heritage Sites across the globe”.
