Solutions for Polish and Baltic Eutrophication (problems) – Low-Nutrient Surplus Agriculture and Sustainable Waste Management

On April 17th 2015, in Warsaw, the Polish Ecological Club together with the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering organized a seminar on “Solutions for Polish and Baltic Eutrophication (problems) – Low-Nutrient Surplus Agriculture and Sustainable Waste Management”.

The main goal of the seminar – which was introduced by Maria Staniszewska Chairwoman of the Polish Ecological Club and Prof SGGW Tomasz Okruszko – was to identify sources of pollution as well as showing the methods to effectively reduce nitrogen and phosphorus loads that every year get into the Baltic Sea through basin rivers. This goal is closely connected to the goal of the Water Framework Directive, to achieve good status of water till 2015.

The seminar participants were experts, representatives of NGOs and administrations, as well as farmers who went through the current problems connected with water pollution by nutrients and the ways we could involve stakeholders in activities. Following are two presentations and an overview of the seminar outcomes:
