EUSBSR 4th Annual Forum - Cooperation for a Healthier Baltic Sea Region Environment
Cooperation for a Healthier Baltic Sea Region Environment was one of ten workshops that took place at the 4th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (11 -- 12 November 2013 Vilnius, Lithuania). The workshop was organised by the Baltic Sea Region Programme and demonstrated achievements of transnational cooperation programmes and projects in the field of environment, and gave orientation for potential project partners about funding sources available in the near future in the Baltic Sea region for projects that tackle environmental issues. Successful cooperation needs time, funding and good examples. At the workshop we learned about selected projects from the region. We also compared the available funding sources and their requirements.

The Baltic coast
This episode presents the natural beauty of the shifting sand dunes of the Curonian Spit, the romantic beaches of the Latvian Baltic Sea and the island worlds of Estonia. Time and again, this deserted and almost untouched nature fascinates. In the winter, ringed seals give birth to their young on the pack ice. In the spring, Konik wild horse stallions fight fierce battles amongst themselves, while colourful European rollers fly through the dune forests. Lynxes wander through the coastal forests and in the orchid meadows turncoats and hoopoes find more than enough food. On the islands around Saaremaa in Estonia, grey seals hunt for fish. They share the archipelago with Europe’s largest tern, the Caspian tern.

Estonia's president on security in the Baltic Sea region
Estonia is one of the Baltic states, a NATO and EU member, Estonia is a key player in Europe’s relationship with Russia and in developing a security policy that tackles this relationship. The Estonian experience with its neighbor to the east, perspectives on how to approach hybrid security threats, and views on how to articulate current security policy challenges, are of high importance and interest both to the Nordic countries and the rest of Europe. On October 16th, we have the pleasure of welcoming the president of Estonia Ms. Kersti Kaljulaid to address these issues and more in a public lecture at NUPI. Chair is Senior Research Fellow and Head of NUPI's Cyber Security Centre, Niels Nagelhus Schia.

BENCH - Beneficial Business Relations between the Central Baltic Region and China
Eesti Kaubandus-Tööstuskoda osaleb projektis BENCH (Beneficial Business Relations between the Central Baltic Region and China). Projektis osalevad 9 organisatsiooni nii Rootsist, Soomest kui ka Eestist. Juhtpartneriks on Östergötlandi Maavalitsus Rootsis. Eestist osalevad Tartu Ülikool, Tartu Teaduspark ja Eesti Kaubandus-Tööstuskoda. The project is led by the County Administrative Board of Östergötland, Sweden. Its partners comprise three universities, two regional development entities, one science park, one centre for environmental technology and one national chamber of commerce and industry. The BENCH regions include Östergötland County in Sweden, Päijät-Häme and Uusimaa in Finland and the whole of Estonia, with the main emphasis on the Tallinn and Tartu regions. These regions, with a total of 2.7 million inhabitants, have a wide range of useful skills and expertise to offer. The BENCH project focuses on three main issues: • How can Finnish, Estonian and Swedish regions co-operate on contact with China? • How can established contacts and exchange with China be utilised in a more efficient way that is beneficial to trade and industry? • How can universities support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Baltic Sea region to do business with China? The project runs from 2010 to 2013.
Åland Islands, Baltic Sea
This is a video of my trip to Åland Islands I did in August 2011. The Åland Islands is an autonomous, demilitarised, monolingually Swedish-speaking region of Finland that consists of an archipelago lying at the entrance to the Gulf of Bothnia in the Baltic Sea. Collectively, the islands in the archipelago form the smallest region of Finland, constituting 0.49% of its land area and 0.50% of its population. Åland's autonomous status means that those provincial powers normally exercised by representatives of the central Finnish government are largely exercised by its own government.

Amazing!! Where the Baltic and North Seas meet
Amazing!! Where the Baltic and North Seas meet all about this channel in here https://goo.gl/D1zMrA In the resort town of Skagen you can watch an amazing natural phenomenon. This city is the northernmost point of Denmark, where the Baltic and North Seas meet. The two opposing tides in this place can not merge because they have different densities. The province of Skagen located in Denmark has witnessed the beauty of the convergence of the two seas. It is characterized by a clear line which separates the two water and shows a magnificent display of natural beauty. Also mentioned in holy Koran, this sea meet is due to the difference in density of both sea waters which appear as adividing line on the ocean. There is a clear difference in the color of the waters coming from two different seas. At the headland at Grenen, the northernmost point of Denmark, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea meet. Because of their different densities, a clear dividing line can be seen. As a result of turbulent seas, beachings and shipwrecks were common.These frequent losses combined with the town's strategic location as the gateway to the Baltic led to Skagen being the site of one of Denmark's earliest lighthouses.

Estonia/Tallinn (Baltic States) 2016 Part 1
Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Estonia , officially the Republic of Estonia (Estonian: Eesti Vabariik), is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe. It is bordered to the north by the Gulf of Finland, to the west by the Baltic Sea, to the south by Latvia (343 km), and to the east by Lake Peipus and Russia (338.6 km). Across the Baltic Sea lies Sweden in the west and Finland in the north. The territory of Estonia consists of a mainland and 2,222 islands and islets in the Baltic Sea,covering 45,339 km2 (17,505 sq mi) of land, and is influenced by a humid continental climate. After centuries of successive Teutonic, Danish, and Swedish rule, Estonians experienced a national awakening that culminated in independence from the Russian Empire towards the end of World War I on 24 February 1918. During World War II, Estonia was then occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940, then Nazi Germany a year later and again in 1944 establishing the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic. In 1988, during the Singing Revolution, the Estonian SSR issued the Estonian Sovereignty Declaration in defiance of the illegal Soviet rule. Estonia then restored its independence during the 1991 coup by the Soviets on the night of 20 August 1991. Estonia lies on the eastern shores of the Baltic Sea immediately across the Gulf of Finland from Finland on the level northwestern part of the rising East European platform between 57.3° and 59.5° N and 21.5° and 28.1° E. Average elevation reaches only 50 metres (164 ft) and the country's highest point is the Suur Munamägi in the southeast at 318 metres (1,043 ft). There is 3,794 kilometres (2,357 mi) of coastline marked by numerous bays, straits, and inlets. The number of islands and islets is estimated at some 2,355 (including those in lakes). Two of them are large enough to constitute separate counties: Saaremaa and Hiiumaa.A small, recent cluster of meteorite craters, the largest of which is called Kaali is found on Saaremaa, Estonia. Estonia is situated in the northern part of the temperate climate zone and in the transition zone between maritime and continental climate. Estonia has four seasons of near-equal length. Average temperatures range from 16.3 °C (61.3 °F) on the Baltic islands to 18.1 °C (64.6 °F) inland in July, the warmest month, and from −3.5 °C (25.7 °F) on the Baltic islands to −7.6 °C (18.3 °F) inland in February, the coldest month. The average annual temperature in Estonia is 5.2 °C (41.4 °F).[97] The average precipitation in 1961–1990 ranged from 535 to 727 mm (21.1 to 28.6 in) per year Snow cover, which is deepest in the south-eastern part of Estonia, usually lasts from mid-December to late March. Estonia has over 1,400 lakes. Most are very small, with the largest, Lake Peipus, being 3,555 km2 (1,373 sq mi). There are many rivers in the country. The longest of them are Võhandu (162 km or 101 mi), Pärnu (144 km or 89 mi), and Põltsamaa (135 km or 84 mi). Estonia has numerous fens and bogs. Forests cover 61% of Estonia. The most common tree species are pine, spruce and birch. Phytogeographically, Estonia is shared between the Central European and Eastern European provinces of the Circumboreal Region within the Boreal Kingdom. According to the WWF, the territory of Estonia belongs to the ecoregion of Sarmatic mixed forests.Wikipedia

Baltic Sea Security: A New military environment
First published by The Swedish Institute of International Affairs - Utrikespolitiska institutet (UI). For many years after the Cold War, the Baltic Sea region was characterized by low tensions, increased cooperation, including the military field, and the sea itself was described as a new Mare Nostrum of the surrounding states and the EU. Against the backdrop of Russian action in Ukraine, this situation has drastically and rapidly changed. The seminar "Baltic Sea Region: the Dynamics of a changing strategic playingfield" aimed to deepen the understanding of the changing strategic situation and military environment in the Baltic Sea region, as well as to assess challenges and opportunities ahead for actors that are involved in the security of the region. This seminar was organized in Visby, Gotland on June 1-3, 2015, by the Swedish Institute of International Affairs on comission by the Swedish Armed Forces Headquarters and the United States European Command. Speakers: Lukasz Kulesa, Research Director, European Leadership Network Richard Froh, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Operations, NATO Anna Maria Dyner, Senior Analyst, Polish Institute of International Affairs, PISM Moderator: Anna Wieslander, Deputy Director, the Swedish Institute of International Affairs

Cleaning up the Baltic Sea - NEFCO
The Baltic Sea is heavily polluted by industrial and agricultural pollutants. Untreated sewage, which for centuries has been dumped into the sea, is one of those major pollutants. This video is about how NEFCO (Nordic Environment Finance Corporation), together with Vodokanal, the St.Petersburg, Russia, waterworks company is doing its part to clean up the Baltic Sea by financing wastewater treatment operations. http://www.nefco.org/newsroom/video_clips NEFCO is an environmental financing institution, which was established in 1990 by the five Nordic countries, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland. Since its inception, the corporation has financed a wide range of environmental projects http://www.nefco.org/projects in Central and Eastern European countries as well as in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. The corporation gives priority to projects that reduce the release of climate gases, improve the ecological status of the Baltic Sea or mitigate the release of toxic pollutants.

SUSANNA KAASINEN - „Sharing best agricultural practices in the Baltic Deal project" [EN]
Sustainable Agriculture -- Price Tags and Possibilities for the Region was one of ten workshops that took place at the 4th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (12 November 2013 Vilnius, Lithuania.) Runoff of nutrients from agriculture is the single biggest source of eutrophication in the Baltic Sea. In the 2013 HELCOM Ministerial Meeting in October, the regional Ministers and EU Commissioner reiterate commitments to prevent pollution from agriculture, and recognize the need to improve the recycling of phosphorus especially in agriculture. Can farmers reduce their nutrient runoff substantially and still be competitive on the market? ORGANISED BY: Helsinki Commission (HELCOM) and the Lithuanian Fund for Nature Susanna Kaasinen, Baltic Deal, Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners (MTK), Finland

Second plenary session: Climate change adaptation and civil protection – building the synergies
Recorded: Tuesday 12 June 2018 (9:00–10:45) at Fotografiska in Stockholm The second plenary session of the conference: Managing complexity: Addressing societal security challenges in the Baltic Sea region (11–12 June 2018) Climate-related issues are a central concern in the Baltic Sea region and a special area of priority. Climate change is contributing to greater frequency and intensity of disasters and their impacts, while disasters erode environmental and social resilience, and thus increase vulnerability to climate change. These have significant consequences in terms of security and well being of citizens, livelihoods and economic growth in the Baltic Sea region and beyond. The link between climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, especially in policy and arrangements for civil protection, have long been acknowledged. Efforts to reduce disaster risk and at the same time adapt to a changing climate have become a European priority, and the Baltic Sea states are no exception. The Baltic 2030 Action Plan emphasizes that the work on the issue of climate change should reflect the integration of climate adaptation issues and calls for enhanced regional cooperation, especially in the area of resilience and disaster risk reduction. The assumption is that more coherent and coordinated efforts can facilitate improved responses in prevention, reduction of existing risks and strengthening of resilience at the regional, national and local levels. This session will seek to answer the following questions: What are the most pressing climate-related challenges in the Baltic Sea region? How far have states in the Baltic Sea region come in terms of building on the compatibilities between climate change adaptation and civil protection? How to better facilitate climate change adaptation and civil protection at local and subregional levels through national actions and cross-border cooperation? Opening remarks: Ambassador Jan Eliasson, Chair of the SIPRI Governing Board Keynote address: Dagfinn Høybråten, Secretary General, Nordic Council of Ministers Moderator: Dan Smith, SIPRI Director Panellists: Paola Albrito, Chief of Regional Office for Europe, UNISDR Cecilie Daae, Director General, DSB, Norway Dr André Jol, Head of Group Climate Change impacts, Vulnerability and Adaption, European Environmental Agency Dr Björn-Ola Linnér, Professor, Linköping University, Sweden

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alan-Heaths-History-Page/173472422695696 http://www.ceepackaging.com twitter : @ceepackaging https://www.facebook.com/pages/CEE-Packaging/135108923181666 I stayed near Dźwirzyno for eight days at the end of June 2011 enjoying excellent weather and the very nice beach there. For five of those days we stayed in a very nice cabin at the nearby village of Rogowo and on the final two days I stayed in my van. This is a really ideal camping spot with the sea on one side and the lake on the other! The weather here was superb, it rained only once during my time there. Unfortunately this did not last much longer as on this day the weather turned bad and it stayed that way for six days. My channel on you tube : http://www.youtube.com/alanheath is one of the most prolific from Poland. I have produced around 1,900 original films. My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating! There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- http://www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focusing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers. Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine! Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!

Baltic Warriors - Sopot
Throughout the summer of 2015, we will play seven larps in seven cities: Tallinn, St Petersburg, Sopot, Kiel, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Helsinki. The world of Baltic Warriors is basically the same one we are living in. The only difference is that in autumn 2014, viking zombies rose from the sea and appeared in a political gathering in central Helsinki, Finland. Most scientists agree that in the "dead zones" of Baltic Sea, where there's no oxygen, zombification of human or animal bodies can happen. However, it is still considered a rare phenomenon. The dead zones are caused by eutrophication. Follow us on Facebook for more info! https://www.facebook.com/balticwarriors
