work for the baltic sea in our Network

The members of the Baltic Sea Challenge network implement their own Baltic Sea Action Plans for their local waters, according to their own field of work and priorities. Our vision and aims 2014-2018 are in line with the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission's (HELCOM) Action Plan, EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. The Baltic Sea Challenge initiative will be updated during 2018 for a new term of 2019-2023.

The Baltic Sea Challenge network is full of  expertise, energy and possibilities! You will find on our website e.g. the network members and their Commitments and Action Plans, examples and tips on how to formulate your own organisation's Baltic Sea Action Plan and the Tools for Water Protection portal with the Baltic Sea Challenge Bank of Actions.

We also have implemented several international projects with external funding.
