Ethno projects started in Sweden in 1990, and now exist in 20 countries around the world. Since 2014 Ethno Portugal has taken place in Castelo de Vide, and has been growing each year. The main focus of this report has been to analyze what impact Ethno Portugal has had in the local community. To do so, I have used qualitative data analysis of the interviews and the feedbacks made during this year residence. The results are somewhat fragmented but do suggest that the project has a positive impact on the community.
