Switch on! Innovation Camp in Viljandi
Switch On! Innovation Camp was arranged in Viljandi, Estonia, between September 15th and 18th, 2016 as part of the Finnish-Estonian project Lights On!
Camp participants came from Estonia, Finland, Belgium and Turkey. The main goal of the innovation camp was to make the participants aware of the potential of the project’s sites and encourage them to boldly innovate new ways to improve visitor experience and tourism industry on the sites.
Switch On! Innovation Camp produced at least one hundred new ideas. According to Project Manager of Metsähallitus Aino von Boehm the results of the camp workshops will be used in different project activities. Results can also bring fresh and new business ideas for local entrepreneurs and NGOs.
The Lights On! Project is executed by Metsähallitus, Humak University of Applied Sciences and Arts, University of Tartu, Viljandi Culture Academy and State Forest Management Centre in Estonia. It receives its funding from the Central Baltic Interreg 2014–2020 programme of the European Union.
