The environmental and societal challenges in the Baltic Sea region are numerous and the work for a sustainable development needs to speed up immediately. The potential to turn these challenges into opportunities are great and studies suggest that 900,000 jobs could be created in the region by 2030. But what practical measures need to be addressed in order for us to take care of, and benefit from, the Baltic Sea in a responsible way?

Climate change affects the Baltic Sea and our region in several ways. During the event participants will have the opportunity to learn about the latest research and concrete measures for mitigation and adaptation on a regional level, meet and exchange ideas and knowledge regarding urgent issues, innovative solutions and good examples.

The Baltic Sea Future congress is an arena for action-oriented municipalities, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors and other stakeholders from across the Baltic Sea region working to reach sustainable and prosperous societies while saving the Baltic Sea.
