EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region enabling progress – but is it enough?
Hand in hand with the Informal Batlic Sea Group in the European Parliament, the EUSBSR and the Baltic Sea Commission of the CPMR, SEARICA will organise a discussion on how to save the Baltic Sea just after summer break.
Hazardous substances such as chemical contamination and plastics still pose big threats in the Baltic Sea Area. The EU-Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region has brought together stakeholders that have achieved progress in the last nine years. Is this progress sufficient? We want to update you on the ongoing activities and results from projects in the Baltic Sea Area and initiate a policy discussion and prepare policy recommendations for the future. Our aim is to develop a closer dialogue with relevant bodies and actors in Brussels, especially the European Parliament as the initiator of the first EU macro-regional strategy and convey relevant results and recommendations to the policy level.
