The Barents Basketball Games is being carried out with financial support from Luleå Municipality and the Swedish Institute.
The project aims to increase sustainability of the northern municipalities along the Barents Road.
Unfortunately we haven’t received financing from the Kolarctic program, thus, Barents Road organization is not going to start this project. However, we are discussing the possibility to start the smaller scale project by using another financing source.
