5. Uusikaupunki region
Closed circulation concept, village action and picturesque surroundings of archipelago villages
This study tour is hosted by Leader Ravakka. Velhovesi ring is an ancient road that wiggles through Uusikaupunki archipelago from a village to another about 25 km from the town centrum. These villages used to be separate islands, but because of the slow rise of ground these cliffs have in many places grown together – however some 250 distinct islands still remain. Old farms and fisher’s houses form a typical part of the landscape in this study tour.
The area is known of its active village life. This study tour familiarizes
participants to different action forms of local village associations; tourist
services, village houses and a nature trail. In addition to this participants will also visit Sybimar - a closed circulation concept enterprise. Their innovation combines food and energy production and recycles nutrients, water, heat and CO2 back to production.
