The Annual Forum 2021 will invite the participants to REVITALISE the Strategy, to RECOVER after COVID-19 together and to RECHARGE for a greener and more resilient Baltic Sea Region.

The main topic of the Annual Forum is GREEN RECOVERY, the event aims at fostering green transition in the Baltic Sea Region through a close partnership and more active involvement of the stakeholders, in particular youth and local communities. Challenges the Baltic Sea Region faces and opportunities for greener future of the Region will be discussed at the Forum.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions the 12th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region will be virtual taking pace from 27 September to 1 October 2021. The agenda of the Annual Forum will be full of interesting, engaging and inspiring discussions, workshops and presentations.

The Annual Forum is offering a programme of 40 events ranging from education, green recovery, social dimension to the role the youth could play in increasing prosperity of the Baltic Sea Region and macro-regional strategies’ possibilities to participate in the EU agenda-setting. ARS BALTICA is organising the session CULTURE 4CLIMATE “How the cultural sector can help to tackle Climate Crisis” on 28 September at 9 AM CET. During the session the partners of the project CULTURE4CLIMATE will present the outcomes of the Seed-Money Phase as well as a good mixed interactive panel discussion on what strong role culture can take in tackling the Climate Crisis.
