The day that makes cooperation stronger
Participation Day 2019 was an excellent opportunity for old and new stakeholders to meet and to learn more about the cooperation within the framework of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. Like previous years also this years Participation Day was arranged back to back to Annual Forum, this time in Gdansk.
It's all about people and learning from each other. It is a simple and compressed but fairly accurate summary of what Participation Day is all about. Participants gathered around four overall themes to discuss project and collaboration proposals. Experienced Policy Area Coordinatiors and Horizontal Action Coordinators participated as mentors, who helped with the assessment of the projects, by creating contacts with the right policy area and proposing how the work can be carried on.
Via THIS LINK you can reach some of the project proposals that were discussed.
During the Participation Day, the role of young people in Baltic Sea cooperation was highlighted. During the Baltic Youth Camp that was arranged the weekend before the Annual Forum a declaration was adopted. It encourages all actors to ensure that young people are always included in the work for a better future in the Baltic Sea Region.
The Baltic Sea Strategy aims at reaching more stakeholders.
Regional meetings will attract stakeholders from several sectors and levels of governance to learn more about what the Baltic Sea Strategy can offer in the form of a framework for effective cooperation. Two regional meetings have already taken place, in Umeå and in Hässleholm.
More information about the event in Hässleholm can be found here.
