RMK has recruited 67 people for mapping heritage culture  15.03

In February, a total of 153 people passed the necessary training in four of the counties of Estonia, 67 of whom will begin working in Tartu, Põlva, Pärnu, and Viljandi counties in March.

“It is great to note that people are still very interested in heritage culture itself as well as its mapping, and that it gives work to people especially in the rural areas where the unemployment rate is the highest,” said Vaike Pommer, the project manager of the RMK’s heritage culture mapping initiative. She added that training and recruitment will continue on the islands of Hiiumaa and Saaremaa in April. This will be preceded by information days held on 6 April on the island of Hiiumaa and on 7 April on the island of Saaremaa. 

In Põlva and Tartu counties the mapping began on 1 March, in Pärnu and Viljandi counties the mapping began on 8 March. The work is being funded by the European Union within the framework of the Estonia – Latvia Programme and the Southern Finland – Estonia Sub-programme of the Central Baltic Programme. RMK is the leading partner in the mentioned projects.

To date, the heritage culture mapping process has been completed in 8 counties. More information on heritage culture is available at http://www.rmk.ee/subject-headings/heritage-culture.
