#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Nornickel has summed up the results of the first grant competition, The World of Taimyr. Its winners – tribal communities, non-profit and budgetary organizations – will use the grants to implement projects aimed not only at preserving long-term traditions and at developing the territory of traditional residence, but also at creating new jobs, developing tourism, using distance learning.

The most voluminous project in terms of the requested amount was the project Ethnopark Tyaha

The grant fund of the competition was 46 million rubles. The company will support 28 socially useful initiatives that will be implemented in 2021–2022.

The winners were six projects of family (clan) communities, two projects of non-profit organizations and 20 projects of municipal and budgetary institutions. The public initiatives of the competition winners are aimed at the revival of national languages, the formation of an ecological culture and environmental campaigns, the development of infrastructure in the Taimyr peninsula villages, the preservation of historical memory, etc.

The most voluminous project in terms of the requested amount was the project Ethnopark Tyaha, prepared by the Tyaha tribal community of the indigenous small-numbered peoples of the North – 4.5 million rubles. The project team plans to complete the construction of the ethno-ecological settlement, where household items and culture of the indigenous peoples of Taimyr will be presented.

The winners will be awarded in April during the festive events dedicated to the 90th anniversary of Taimyr and the Reindeer Herder Day. From June 1, the winners of the competition will start implementing their projects.
