RINS_Inclusive Sound Nature Route

The RINS project is a proposal for transfrontier laboratories that through co-design, co-creation, knowledge transfer and exchange of good practices aims to create inclusive and accessible to all people in digital podcast format, mountain and coastal sound heritage routes.
The project consortium is formed by Sound Earth Legacy association (SEL), Andorra Recerca + Innovació (AR+I) and the participation of Es Far Cultural (EFC) association.

The main objectives of the project are:

  • To exchange good practices between territories in order to devise and design new models that bring the environment closer in a sustainable and inclusive way through immersive technological tools.
  • Create podcasts of inclusive routes of sound nature, with educational content through recordings of immersive soundscapes of Andorra, Catalonia and Menorca to share with a national and international audience through platforms, social networks, between others.
  • Strengthen the cooperation of transfrontier initiatives that aim to enhance the value of their natural sound heritage as part of the intangible heritage, raise awareness for its protection and respect for the environment. 
  • Promote the transfrontier mobility of multidisciplinary experts from each territory.

The aim is to develop a resource addressed to all citizens who, for health or other reasons, are unable to access natural areas and want to learn about this heritage through soundscapes and digital educational content.
Andorra Recerca + Innovació has chosen to work in the Ordino area, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2020, with the aim of highlighting the natural and landscape heritage, as well as the human history that has sculpted the environments as we know them today.
The project is fully funded by the Working Community of the Pyrenees (CTP) through the first call for micro-projects for transfrontier cooperation in the Pyrenees.
