A year of building resilience together – RESIST 2023 wrapped

In this final newsletter of 2023, we’re wrapping up the first year of the RESIST Project and taking a look back at some of the many highlights we shared along the way. 

It has been a busy year for RESIST, with project meetings taking us from Finland, to Denmark, Norway and Portugal. Our YouTube channel has grown in leaps and bounds with seven new videos, including our eye-catching series on nature-based solutions in Southwest Finland.

The project has been brought to the page with articles on Finland, Catalonia and the wider Iberian Peninsula, plus much more. And our community on social media keeps on growing!

Check out our RESIST Wrapped for a bigger picture of an exciting year brimming with ideas.  

And with that, we wish you all a fantastic end to the year. We can’t wait for more exciting adventures in 2024.
