Find out about the Baltic regional initiative




Latest Tweets


The Baltic rim countries are experiencing rapid economic growth with new transport and energy infrastructure, growing cities and ports, and agribusiness development. At the same time the Baltic region is subject to a range of different pressures driven by climate change and anthropogenic factors such as expanding demand for natural resources and increased stress on the natural environment due to agriculture, tourism, energy generation, waste streams, pollution and habitat modification. They all have impacts on the marine ecosystems (e.g. result in eutrophication, changing benthic habitats, coastal erosion, etc.). Therefore there is an increasing need for adaptive management strategies to address these anthropogenic impacts.

Get excited for the #eusbsrforum2020! As the Forum co-organisers alongside the @cityofturku and @Ulkoministerio we are all excited to welcome current and future #BalticSeaRegion colleagues to connect. See you on the 20th of October!

#balticbreakfast by @ostersjocentrum/Stockholm University on #BalticSeaActionPlan and science. Watch it on 7 October (8:30-9:15 CEST/Stockholm) via the live stream:

Annual @BSSSCnetwork Conference starts already tomorrow! Join and meet @VASAB_org at the digital expo to talk and discuss about #spatialplanning in the #BSR #BSSSCAC2020

Our report on evaluation of MSP now available @PanBalticScope website. The report includes conceptual basis + examples from Latvia and Poland (+ briefly from Belgium and Germany) 🇱🇻🇲🇨🇧🇪🇩🇪
& two page executive summary for the busy people

Having a great workshop on satellite applications in the Baltic Sea region – Getting a grip on salinity, sea level, land-sea carbon fluxes, water resources, ocean temperature and color, even CO2 fluxes and more from space… co-hosted by ESA/Baltic Earth.

Our website is now re-launched! Check for all current and future project output!
#BONUS #Foodwebs

This autumn is a very active one in our region!
Even though we can‘t meet physically the virtual formats give the chance to everyone to participate in interesting events.
In case you do not want to miss anything, read the thread! 👇🏾
Enjoy a youthful autumn 🍂🌊

Can sport events be sustainable? Project Baltic RECoord #FundedbySI now releases common guiding principles for sustainable sport events aiming to inspire and provide knowledge for future sport events. @RFidrotten @ENGSOsport #EUSBSR

In #OurBaltic or in #OurOcean, #Data is key for #sustainability🐟; with science/fisheries co-managed data acquisition tools, stocks will be better managed & artisanal fisheries will gain visibility for a fair access to the maritime space. #PERK #MONTEREAL

9⃣0⃣% of beneficiaries recommend the #BlueInvest Readiness Assistance programme to other #SMEs & #startups in the #BlueEconomy.
