The Sustainable Seas Foundation raises awareness and conducts advocacy work regarding the situation in the Baltic Sea and what needs to be done.
Our network includes scientist, industry, NGOs, municipalities, government agencies and individuals that all share our commitment to the Baltic Sea.
By means of mobile and digital exhibitions, seminars, tv broadcasts and our visits to ports around the Baltic Sea, we communicate the scientist´s latest findings to inform and generate debate, and to show how we can reduce the environmental degradation of the Baltic Sea. Our goal is to influence individuals and policy makers to make the right decisions to save the Baltic Sea.
The Sustainable Seas Foundation is one of the founders of "Baltic Sea Future - innovation, vision and leadership for a sustainable Baltic Sea region".
In collaboration with the City of Stockholm and Stockholm University, we invite mayors from the nine countries surrounding the Baltic Sea, municipal officials, scientists and representatives from the business community to an annual two day event. The aim is to find ways to speed progress towards a healthier Baltic Sea.
The first congress was inaugurated by H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and held 6-7 March 2017. 375 delegates from 15 nations gathered to exchange knowledge, inspiration and solutions for how we can jointly save our beautiful Baltic Sea.
