Seminar and workshop:
Towards a healthier Baltic Sea and low emission maritime transport
Wednesday, 8 June 2011
Hotel Jurmala Spa, Jurmala, Latvia
The Baltic Sea battles numerous threats that vary from land-driven nutrient loading to ship exhaust airborne pollutants. It is high time to back up our resolve, capacity and expertise with actual deeds if we want the Sea to recover. We have the know-how, but how can the pool of knowledge be made feasible and attractive to policy-making processes?
The aim of this seminar and workshop is to offer participants tools on how to put in practice green thinking. The presentations will discuss themes of marketing, productizing, information dissemination, political rhetoric and advertising within environmental work.
- What are the tools we need to better market our expertise and solutions to policy-making processes (decision-makers, politicians)?
- What is the benefit that green innovations will bring to citizens, decision-makers, politicians, and how can we verify them to those in doubt – what are the communication barriers we might meet?
- How can we combine eco-thinking and competitiveness?
This seminar is targeted to civil servants, NGO representatives and researchers interested in making their environmental work even more effective. The seminar is free of charge for the participants but requires registration. It is organised by Cities for a Healthier Sea project and BSR InnoShip project.
