The CCB summer course, ”Our Common Baltic, OCB,” takes place this year at Hel Marine Station 9-14 September.
Hel Marine Station is situated on the top of the beautiful Hel peninsula in Poland. Hel has boat connection with Gdynia during summertime.
CCB member organizations are entitled to propose one person to Our Common Baltic. As resources are limited, priority is given to those who register first. If you are interested to participate, please contact your CCB member organization for further instructions and information about registrations.
The CCB network aims to develop contacts between environmentalists in all the Baltic Sea countries.
Looking forward to a fun and informative course this September!
