The project has been promoting the tourism offer in North Kurzeme and Saaremaa Island and emphasizing the natural advantages of the coastal municipalities. Beaches of the participating municipalities were improved during the project, allowing to meet the requirements for Blue Flag certificates. Joint visibility of the North Kurzeme region and Saaremaa Island was raised by various promotional activities. A special Baltic Sea related environmental competition between the schools of Ventspils and Kuressaare was organized in March 2011 as a way to reach out to the young audience (see the pictures below).
