Global and regional environmental matters will be in focus during the
XIX International Environmental Forum "Baltic Sea Day", to be held on
22–23 March 2018 in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The agenda of the
Forum will be based on proposals to be developed by key stakeholders. It will
reflect the latest issues concerning the Baltic Sea environment and
current regional activities, including:
involvement of municipalities
assuring good environmental status of the Sea
in the region.
Discussion themes of plenaries and roundtables will
include the outcome of the HELCOM Ministerial Meeting, to be held in
Brussels two weeks earlier, on 6 March. The 19th Baltic Sea Day
Forum will be devoted to the memory of Mr. Leonid Korovin, who passed
away in 2017.
This year, the Forum events will take place in connection with the exhibition Ecology in the Big City. The venue is also new for this year: the convention and exhibition centre «Expoforum» on 64/1 Peterburgskoye ave., St. Petersburg, Russia.
