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.

Thank you Freja and Cecilie from the Danish Youth Fire Brigades for joining our seminar on how young people play a role in building resilient societies in the #BSR!

"Young people can definitely be part of a helping society. But we have to teach them much more how they can help."


🔔 Marine debris is on the agenda at ASCOBANS #AC27 !

🚨 Entanglement in & ingestion of marine debris are major conservation concerns for small cetaceans.

🗑️ Most of the marine litter worldwide comes from land, but fishing operations & cargo shipping are notable sources, too.

How to address new conditions in #BalticSeaRegion collaboration & what`s next for VASAB and #VASABVision2040 ?

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!

We are inviting you to attend the Baltic Stakeholder Conference 2022 - Climate Change in the Baltic Sea (BSC2022) to be held online on 26-27 September 2022.
Registration details and more information on the BSC2022 website at

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

UBC workshop "Effective policies for inclusion in cities during and after the Ukrainian war" will be held online on 11 October 2022 at 14.30-16.00 CET within the EU Week of Regions & Cities 2022 – register by 9 October! ➡️
#UBC_BSR #EURegionsWeek

New projects #FundedbySI starting up this autumn. Find out more about project PeerNetSE coordinated by @reachforchange_

We are thinking what #MariPark as nature inclusive maritime business area could be for #BalticSeaRegion & #NorthSeaRegion (and #MSP) 🪸
Take a look on some reflections:
& follow #CommunityOfPractice on #SustainableBlueEconomy lead by @BlauweCluster

Kicking off consultations for the 2023 🇪🇺🇬🇧 & 🇪🇺🇳🇴 & coastal States fishing opportunities.

Our focus is on establishing comprehensive arrangements, to provide a level playing field for our sector & preserve the sustainability criteria of our Common Fisheries Policy.
