5 November, 2021 Workshop on Workshop on Multi-level Governance in Baltic Sea Region

Land-Sea-Act project is organising an international workshop for spatial planners of all levels, MSP authorities, regional & local representatives of the governing authorities in coastal areas

The objective of the workshop is to present a draft version of the Multi-level Governance Agenda on Blue Growth and Spatial Planning in the Baltic Sea Region* and to get feedback from different stakeholders on various multi-level governance aspects of managing land-sea interactions.

*The Multi-level Governance Agenda is a result of the Land-Sea-Act project and is a guiding document for various stakeholders recommending actions and solutions on how and to what extent problems, opportunities and stakeholders in land-sea interactions may be governed in a mindful way.
