This years Participation Day takes place in Tallinn on June 4. The aim of the event is to attract local and regional levels to take part in EUSBSR cooperation and present concrete project proposals and concepts.
This half-day prior to the Annual Forum should be understood as a market place where stakeholders can present their ideas, get feedback and guidance from the policy community enabling new stakeholders to take part in the implementation of the Strategy.
Our aim is to reduce the step into the Strategy, making our guiding principle with multi-level governance and cross-sectorial cooperation a reality.
Focus on three themes
This year’s Participation Day will focus on three themes:
• Sustainable consumption and production (PA Bioeconomy)
• Integration of migrants (PA Education)
• Energy efficiency (PA Energy)
We invite representatives of EUSBSR stakeholders, such as local and regional authorities, civil society organisations, academia, business and media, to this Tallinn Participation Day. Welcome to spread the attached information leaflet to your stakeholders and contacts.
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.
