The City of Gothenburg's anniversary projects are sprung from ideas from the residents of Gothenburg's ideas. The projects help to fulfill the 400-years anniversary's goals and vision. They also add value to the city through unique solutions and events that are sustainable in the long term. They are of a different nature and represent a diversity and breadth. The projects are considered to have the potential to make a lasting impression for the future.

Integration through the docks at Eriksberg
This is a collection of historical boats and working boats from various eras and home ports. Strong emphasis is placed on bringing in people of different ages and backgrounds. This promotes an exchange of ideas and knowledge about how these boats were maintained and sailed. There are various organised activities, courses in seamanship, talks about our cultural heritage and ongoing maintenance work. The docks will also be an appealing day out for many residents of the city and visitors.
