EspooCult Fact Sheet: Participation creates a sustainable and tolerant urban environment

The EspooCult research project looked at cultural services and recreational activities as means to increase people’s opportunities to get their voices heard, boost their self-esteem and participate in the activities of local communities. The fact sheet was created in cooperation with KEA European Affairs, the research centre that acted as the international research partner in the EspooCult project.
