s

Date: 29th of September, 15.00 -17.00

The panel will address the question, crucial for the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) of clean shipping with the involvement of maritime businesses and will stress the connection of the Baltic and Arctic perspectives through the engagement of representatives of the neighbouring countries Norway, Iceland, and Russia. The aim of the panel is to bring different stakeholders together to discuss how to implement these strategies in practice, and to identify joint challenges and opportunities. The cross-sectorial approach is crucial to these discussions, and for this reason the event will bring the perspective of the private sector and maritime industries, representatives of the officials, international organisations, and academia. The knowledge and good practices exchange with the neighbouring countries helps providing a broader perspective to the discussions, given that the sustainable development of the maritime sector is a common concern and of high relevance for both the Baltic and the Arctic regions.
