After the summer holidays the parties concerned in the three participating countries decided to apply for funding to Nordplus for preparatory visits to discuss and develop further project plans. The application was accepted and two representatives from Finland and two from Norway came to Iceland late in November to FAS to work on the application and develop the ideas from last spring.
The guests just spent two days in Höfn but during the time it was a very efficient work. We managed to decide what the main emphasis will be and timeline in the project. Some hours were used for common skype meetings. We are also very happy that Geoparks in all participating countries will be partners in the project and the Vatnajökull National park in Iceland. It will strengthen the schools to have an opportunity to work with experts from the parks in field trips.
After the intensive work for two days the guests went back home, and all had some tasks to work on for the application. We are now in the final steps working on the application which must be submitted latest 3rd of February 2020.
Hopefully our application will be accepted so our ideas will happen.
