Baltic Sea Future congress
We have the technology, we have the knowledge. What we need now is an innovative, visionary and multidisciplinary leadership!
Most welcome to Baltic Sea Future, a two-day congress in Stockholm held on the 6-7 March 2017.
Baltic Sea Future will address the challenges in the Baltic Sea region, focusing on the key role of municipalities. The Baltic Sea is loved, needed and polluted, and municipalities are the hubs who can coordinate interests, engage local citizens, turn scientific results into action, and handle the challenges to create a sustainable future for the Baltic Sea.
At Baltic Sea Future key stakeholders from the Baltic Sea countries will gather to share knowledge, motivation, best practices and tools. They will be inspired by municipalities that have succeeded, scientists who know what is needed, companies providing innovations and techniques that can do it, and agencies that can help them reach their vision.
Inauguration and welcome speech by Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria, UN appointed Sustainable Development Goals Advocate.
Selections of speakers:
• Johan Rockström, Professor, Stockholm University and Director of Stockholm Resilience Centre
• Per Espen Stoknes, PhD, BI Center for Climate strategy, Director of Centre for Green Growth at the Norwegian Business School.
• Monika Stankiewicz, Executive Secretary, HELCOM
