9 November, 2021 Policy Workshop Sustainable Blue Economy

Strategies to foster economic development in coastal areas and deal with the challenges ahead

The project Land-Sea-Act aims to bring together stakeholders involved in coastal management and planning, find solutions to Maritime Spatial Planning and Blue Growth challenges around the Baltic Sea, and elaborate Multi-level Governance Agenda on Blue Growth and Spatial Planning in Baltic Sea Region.

Shortly before the end of the project, we would like to take the opportunity to discuss the need to improve framework conditions for fostering novel Blue Growth solutions and look at developments and challenges from different geographical levels in a Policy Workshop.

  • potentials of renewable energies,

  • balancing regional interests with nature conservation,
