According to the CHARTER of the B7 ISLANDS NETWORK"Workgroups are the working bodies of the B7 and set up ...

The B7 Day

1157673 615790755121737 1253881675 n

Five islands participated and help with the B7 Day during a few sunny days in Mariehamn on the Åland Islands. The event took place in the Maritime Quarter, a living marine centre boat-building activity and other traditional handicrafts, during a well-visited annual event called the Sea Days. We offered local products from our islands and informed visitors about our islands and our organisation.

Our group was in high spirits and the flow of visitors was good during the whole day. People where obviously interested in our cooperation but most popular was without a doubt, the treasure hunt for our youngest visitors.

We ended the stay on the Åland with a visit to the Meat art exhibition, which was organised by People-to-People. The Åland Chairmanship would like to thank 1174838 615790948455051 824617263 neveryone who came and made the day possible, and we hope you were happy with the arrangement.
