Find out about the Baltic regional initiative

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.

At the moment, #kaamos defines everyday life in the very North. This Finnish word describes the darkness when the sun does not rise above the horizon in areas above the Arctic Circle. #WordOfTheNorth

Thanks to the organizers of today’s #BalticForGenerations conference for the opportunity to explain the work of tge HELCOM SUBMERGED Group and HELCOM’s overall work on submerged hazardous objects in the #BalticSea! @HELCOMInfo


@VASAB_org The 'Handbook for developing Visions in MSP' published @EU_MSP_Platform got attention for discussion on #VASAB Vision 2040.

THANX for inviting me to present @PanBalticScope results and get inspirations for on-going work on ToRD transboundary ocean & coastal governance in @ICES_ASC WGMPCZM! Great to collect thoughts on how to manage and think LSI in MSP over the latest projects and marine basins!

Please spread the info to interested students! Application Deadline: 15 January 2022.

We are looking forward tuning in on #RiDaysEU today and tomorrow. Lots of interesting sessions on enabling #innovation, citizens and future #reseach directions.

Congratulations UBC member cities Arendal, Espoo, Helsinki, Lahti, Linköping, Turku & Växjö for showing city climate leadership in action & reaching @CDP’s Cities A List 2021! #Arendal @EspooEsbo @helsinki @GreenLahti2021 @Linkopingkommun @cityofturku @Vaxjokommun

Today´s seminar based on key take-aways from the “EaP Leadership Programme” #FundedbySI run by @GlobalUtmaning. @kurtbratteby emphasized importance of long-term process building by using good examples from BSR and peer learnings to better promote the #EasternPartnership

Made for fishers, with help from the fishers: #EMFF #MONTEREAL is a monitoring tool born from a science-fisheries partnership. It brings improvement in monitoring fishing effort for the small-scale fleet in 🇵🇹. With a little help from 🇪🇺.

Honkanen etal.(2021) studied the diurnal variability of pCO2 at Utö Research Station: the largest variability in seawater carbon dioxide concentration is due to biological processes.
