ATLANTERRA
ATLANTERRA, fuelled by the GREEN MINES project experience (co-financed by the INTERREG IIIB Atlantic Area program), aims for the preservation, the promotion and the transnational structuring of the mining patrimony along the Atlantic Area. The former mining regions gathered are determined to preserve and promote the patrimony they have in common, in order to create new resources. This project allows them to establish a shared practice for the management and organisation of activities related to their mining legacy and to help them solve any problem that they might encounter.

ATLANTERRA will run for 3 years from 2010 to 2012.
