The endangered eel

The European eel (Anguilla anguilla) is a critically endangered fish, but we still have it in our waters and we can act now to save this unique fish.

Plastic Free Baltic

CCBs action site for stopping the use of microplastic in consumer products.
CCB considers products that contain microplastics to be harmful and unnecessary and that adding microplastics to any consumer product should be banned!


Pills Free Baltic

CCBs action site for reducing pharmaceuticals in the Baltic Sea environment.
CCB express its deep concern about the threat posed by pharmaceuticals to citizens and the environment. Even low concentrations of pharmaceuticals in the environment can have far-reaching effects on ecosystems and human health.


10 year have passed since the Baltic Sea Action Plan was adopted by HELCOM and 9 years since the Marine Strategy Framework Directive was developed. Progress of the Baltic to reach Good Environmental Status is slow and very far from the initial ambitions! As Baltic citizens we have a right, a claim to the Baltic Sea and it is.
