Student Ambassadors

The Baltic University Programme's Student Ambassadors are in total 18 students from 13 participating universities that actively promote the BUP and upcoming events at their home universities and in their home countries. They also function as an additional contact person between the Coordinating Secretariat, the National Centres, but also the Student Representatives and the local universities. There are three different profiles that you can choose to be engaged in as a Student Ambassador; communication, and events. The ambassadors can choose to be engaged in more than one profile and based on what they focus on they will be able to work closer with the students who share their interests and work together in an international context to promote and develop the BUP.

Ada would love to be able to look forward to a future where the Baltic Sea is clean, the fish are healthy, and the industries profiting off of the region are sustainable and do not pose a danger to the environment. To achieve these goals, however, there are steps that have to be taken; if our communities are not educated about the issues that the Baltic region is facing, no real action towards a better future can be taken.

Ioana-Gabriela thinks that sustainable development is of paramount importance for the future of the Baltic Sea Region. Adopting eco-friendly practices is imperative to ensure the long-term environmental health of the area. Equally crucial is the facilitation of cross-border collaboration, which can lead to stronger economic growth for the countries benefiting from the Baltic Sea. Collaboratively, they can even advance research with both a local and a global impact. A shared identity (why not) can strengthen the relations between these nations. Together, they can collectively address common challenges and promote peace and security, particularly in these times when one of the countries with Baltic Sea access is directly threatening global democracy.

Senuri beieves that the Baltic Sea Region needs to focus on how to develop sustainability, more co-operation among countries in the region and also mainly of environmental protection. The awareness should be done through the most crucial factor in a person's life, education and individuals should also be empowered to understand their responsibility to protect the Baltic Sea Region. I will help my best to build the understanding and the interdisciplinary education within the region. Also, with my experiences in speaking, handling and team working with huge audiences, I would be able to create an amazing positive future in the Baltic Sea Region.

Alice think that the main challenge the Baltic Sea Region is facing is climate change. Therefore, we have to work all together to find sustainable ways to live to protect the environment and the vital resources we have. I believe that the Baltic Sea Region can set an example for other on how modern and industrialized countries can thrive in their economy not at the expenses of Nature.

Frida hopes for a common idea of a sustainable management of the region. To do that she believes that we have to work across borders and learn from each other's knowledge and experiences. Frida wishes to see that we can find a way to treat our environment and everyone who lives in the area with respect.

Ha believes that the BUP has brought and will continue to bring together diverse knowledge, skills, experiences, perspectives, and cultures of people from not only the Baltic Sea but also around the world. It is a pencil that draws up innovative ideas to be put into practice and erases any barriers to connecting thousands of international organisations in cooperative projects and actions. And without a doubt, it empowers young generations to create a better (sustainable) future by providing them with valuable tools and opportunities.

Sanan offer some views on the Baltic Sea Region based on present trends and opportunities. With its various economies, abundant natural resources, and talented workforce, the Baltic Sea Region has a lot of potential for growth and development. However, the area also has to deal with issues including geopolitical tensions, environmental pollution, and climate change. The Baltic Sea Region could, in the future, emerge as a global leader in innovation and sustainable development, with a focus on digitalization, green technology, and the circular economy. Strong regional collaboration and deliberate expenditures in research, education, and infrastructure might make this easier.

Anastasiia believes that the development in the Baltic Sea Region should be aimed at the transition from a linear to a circular economy and the creation of all conditions for the preservation of biodiversity and natural landscapes and forests. An important direction of development should be the transition to a "green" economy, especially in the fields of energy and transport infrastructure. This involves the use of energy from renewable sources, the popularization of public transport and the replacement of diesel engines with more environmentally friendly electric ones. It is also worth paying attention to the invention of new technologies that would allow using available resources as efficiently as possible. Another direction of development should be the improvement of international communication, raising the level of people's awareness of the importance of rational use of the resources of both this region and the entire planet.
