The 8th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region will be hosted by the Federal Foreign Office together with the Baltic Sea Commission and in close cooperation with the European Commission on 13 - 14 June 2017 in Berlin.
Within the forum PA Energy in collaboration with HA Climate, PA Security and the BDF are organizing a seminar:
- "Climate Challenges for Energy Supply"
- 13 June 17:00-18:30
- Venue: Lasehof/ library
This seminar aims to address key problems caused by the climate change to energy supply and seeks answers how climate resilient technology and improved interconnections ensure affordable and secure supply of carbon neutral energy to the Baltic Sea Region.
The main theme of the overall 8th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region is "Connectivity", emphasizing how essential is to intensify contacts throughout the whole Baltic Sea Region and to develop a better awareness of each other’s perspectives. “Connectivity” also concerns an efficient and comprehensive collaboration between all levels of government, it has a crucial infrastructural dimension - be it in the area of transport, energy or communication. It is the basis for modern business, which is network based and outward looking.
About 800 participants from governments, international organisations, non-governmental organizations, universities, local and regional administrations and business will discuss a broad range of issues relevant for the Baltic Sea Region, analyse the overall progress of the Strategy and develop recommendations for its future implementation.
Since 2010 a yearly forum has been organised to support the EUSBSR. The purpose of the forum is to communicate the work of the Strategy and its objectives, to stimulate policy discussion, promote results, and to provide stakeholders of the EUSBSR with a networking occasion. It is very important to keep balance between the three objectives of the EUSBSR - “Save the sea”, Connect the region” and “Increase prosperity”.
The annual forum takes place in one of the eight EU member states in the Baltic Sea Region and aims to attract key stakeholders and active partners of the EUSBSR from local, regional, national and EU level.
