Samiland is part of the UNESCO Observatory Cultural Village programme. Together with local communities, UNESCO Observatory has launched art-based multidisciplinary projects in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. UNESCO Observatory’s vision is to increase arts education in the educational programmes of the cultural villages. UNESCO Observatory’s cultural village model was developed as part of this project. It provides an excellent example of the critical importance of arts education and creative activities for sustainable development, communality, flexibility and local manifestations of cultures. The partners participating in the project represent several fields, such as architecture, sociology, economics and business life.

Nyt on hyvä päivä vierailla Samilandissa. Täällä ylhäällä on vain -26*c kun alhaalla keskustassa on -38*c.

It's a good day to visit Samiland. Here's only -26*c when it's -38*c at the centrum of Levi.

Tämä kuva on otettu eilen. Tätä menoa Samilandin ulkonäyttely hukkuu lumeen ennen kevättä. :)

This picture is taken yesterday. It's already quite much of snow. Our outdoor area might drown into it before the spring arrives. :)
