Abstract

The Viljandi Culture Academy of the University of Tartu organized the international Nordic log construction days on 9 & 10 April 2014, the goal of which was to take a look at the multi-layered nature of log culture in Northern Europe and to discuss the current state and future outlook of log construction skills, a common part of the region’s heritage. Practical workshops, advice sessions and discussion seminars with Estonian, Latvian, Finnish and Swedish experts were included in the programme.

The results of cooperation in the international PROLOG project were summarized. The project was seeking to remove development constraints of hand-crafted log construction industry by creating a comprehensive survey and integral vision for future development of log building education in the Nordic-Baltic region. As the project summary, it is planned to take steps to have Nordic log construction heritage added to the UNESCO list of intangible heritage.
