The Future of ESD in the Baltic Sea Region & CBSS Summer Youth Camp 2013
Hereby, the Council of the Baltic Sea States would like to invite you to participate in the workshop:
The Future of Education for Sustainable Development in the Baltic Sea Region & CBSS Summer Youth Camp 2013 in Kaliningrad Oblast
25th – 26th April 2013
CBSS Secretariat Premises, Slussplan 9, 111 30 Stockholm
The Baltic Sea Region is home to a large number of highly educated people as well as excellent research institutions. To capitalize on that and to strengthen the regional coherence we need to facilitate cross-border mobility and cooperation, as well as intensify knowledge transfer, making it accessible to all members of society. Key to achieving this is the process known as Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), which aims to integrate principles and practices of sustainable development into all aspects of education and learning.

MSP for Professionals
An outline for a course on Maritime Spatial Planning has been produced by the Maritime Spatial Planning project. The objective of the proposed course is to bring together the MSP-planners in order to ensure a good implementation MSP in the Baltic Sea Region. The main objective is to convey basic information on MSP and the “state of the art”. A second objective is to bring MSP-planners together and create informal professional network(s)among the planners. Lectures and discussions with experts (MSP drivers in the BSR) will be organised with the aim to inspire the audience and wrap up discussions.
