 Priority Working Areas

  • Water Protection in Agriculture

    The Baltic Sea is heavily affected by eutrophication resulting from excess nutrient loads for many years. About 50% of all nutrients stem from agriculture in the Baltic sea catchment area. CCB works actively within HELCOM working groups and Heads of Delegation meetings to uphold the agreed goals and....

  • River Basin and Wastewater Management

The CCB summer course "Our Common Baltic" is a fantastic way for engaged volunteers to get involved, to learn more about the problems and solutions for the Baltic sea catchment and to meet and learn from each others experiences and specific issues in the respective country and local situation.⠀

Due to the current circumstances with travel and COVID-19, OCB will be held online this year, with no travel necessary. We are creating a dynamic program to meet this challenge, with excellent presentations and activities to connect you with your Baltic Sea home and neighbours in the program.⠀

Our program limit is 25 participants, and we will begin by considering one person from each member and partner organization, but we could bring more in if we do not fill by our registration deadline, 12 June.⠀

Read the agenda and register on our website (link in bio!).⠀
