A Book on Cooperation between Estonia and Latvia
A book about the cooperation between Estonians and Latvians “Estonia-Latvia Stories” was published in 2014 in Estonian, Latvian and English. It contains sixty seven short stories, written by eight writers from both countries and photos by six photographers.
Stories, featuring cooperation results through the eyes of the people from Estonia and Latvia, discuss what has been achieved during projects funded by Estonia-Latvia Programme from 2007 until 2013. The cooperation initiatives are very different – they vary from small cross-border road and harbor reconstruction to joint environmental, cultural and technological projects, all of them involving at least one partner from Estonia, and one partner from Latvia. The book contains also visual graphics and tables with financial information, explaining how the projects were co-funded from the European Regional Development Fund, Estonian and Latvian partners.
