The European Heritage Days are one of the biggest cultural events that take place in 50 countries in Europe. From mid-August to early November, thousands of events will take place across these countries to celebrate their national culture and heritage. Take a look at our video from Finland about the cultural heritage of Kalajoki.
Finland celebrated their heritage days as an ode to its cultural environment from September 5 – 11. Our local Finnish reporter Uula Neitola made a great report on an event held in Kalajoki city, called ‘Cultural heritage by bike’.
European heritage days
Our reporter Uula grabbed his bike and camera and set off to report on the event Cultural heritage of Kalajoki city. The event was organised as a bike tour and guided walking tour. It showcases historic houses, the war history of the town and the sustainable practice of renovating the houses that are passed down from generation to generation.
Filmed by local volunteers
The ‘Local Heritage Reports’ will be filmed by young local reporters from 10 target countries this year, such as Ireland, Finland, and Germany amongst others. The theme this year for European Heritage days is sustainability. Our reporters will uniquely capture the theme in their reports.
