Join the interactive session by SUBMARINER Network and Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission (HELCOM) on 24 - 25. September 2020 at the launch of EU4Ocean coalition


The Baltic Sea is an ecosystem facing unique challenges. The intensity of usage by multiple actors from the shipping industry to energy, combined with nutrient run-off from agriculture and phenomena such as exacerbated algal blooms make a “healthy Baltic Sea for all” a very demanding task.

And yet, the Baltic Sea region is also home to some of the best-established and intensive international cooperation at the scientific, civil and even political level. Its burgeoning blue bioeconomy needs a big push from the consumer awareness and demand side. 

Join the hosts SUBMARINER Network and Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission (HELCOM) for an interactive session. Our aim is to capitalise on the tradition of exchange and to bring Ocean Literacy more into focus at the Baltic level, making the most of all the existing grassroots initiatives that are already reaching out locally. Our immediate aim is to operationalise the next phase of the EU4Ocean coalition in the Baltic. This means engaging with our stakeholders on the current state of OL in the BSR and focusing on challenges that are particular to our sea basin, as well as identifying concrete actions to address these. 

Our experts will provide insights into great ways of gathering momentum and building networks for action, as well as how to target and engage young people.

We hope to put in place 2-3 concrete proposals for next steps (actors, dates, events, action) that will help us build momentum for ocean literacy here in the Baltic while determining how we can contribute to the EU-wide effort. After all, as the ocean literate already know:  there is only one ocean.

Register here to take part in the online workshop!

25 September 2020, 14:00 – 16:00 CEST

The workshop is organised as part of the EU4Ocean Coalition for Ocean Literacy. Further information on EU4Ocean is available on the website.
