Baltic Sustainable Boating 2030 project partners to convene in Stockholm for their annual meeting

Partners of the Baltic Sustainable Boating 2030 project will gather in Stockholm in March 2024 to outline future directions for enhancing sustainable boating tourism.

Partners of the Baltic Sustainable Boating 2030 (BaltSusBoating 2030) project are set to convene in Stockholm on 18-19 March 2024 for their annual meeting to evaluate progress and plan future steps towards enhancing sustainable boating tourism in the Baltic Sea Region.

Co-financed by the Interreg Baltic Sea Programme, the BaltSusBoating 2030 initiative aims to foster collaboration among key organisations and stakeholders in boating tourism across the Baltic Sea Region (BSR).

Its objectives include creating a pan-Baltic cooperation platform, developing a Sustainability Roadmap, facilitating knowledge exchange, engaging in dialogue with policymakers, and progressively shaping a marketing strategy that presents the Baltic Sea as a sustainable boating destination.

The project seeks to improve the sustainability and appeal of leisure boating in the BSR, capitalising on emerging opportunities in boating tourism post-pandemic. The CBSS lifts the initiative by providing a platform for political dialogue and connecting with relevant policymakers across the BSR, aligning the project's efforts with broader sustainability goals outlined in the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the CBSS Baltic 2030 Action Plan.

Led by the Association of Sea Cities & Municipalities (ZMiGM - Poland), the BaltSusBoating 2030 consortium includes a range of organisations committed to developing boating destinations and marketing within the BSR. The project, which runs from 1 October 2022 to 30 September 2024, is supported by funding from the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme.
