Environment and Sustainability


We find and develop creative and practical solutions for sustainable development, facilitate them and make them grow:


Ensuring prosperous economies, healthy societies and dynamic ecosystems in a balanced and integrated manner

Baltic 21 works with all aspects of sustainable development. This means that we are not just targeting purely environmental issues, but also social and economic actions in an integrated way.

For the period 2010–2015, we are focused on four strategic areas:

  • Climate change
  • Sustainable urban and rural development
  • Sustainable consumption and production.
  • Innovations and education for sustainable development


Today, we work together in a network of about 200 partners on eco-innovation, education for sustainable development, promoting bio-energy, adapting to climate change and more. We bring together experts from governmental organizations, NGOs and other stakeholders. Together we develop hands-on projects and turn results into policy recommendations.



Baltic 21 has a project-to-policy approach which means that we transform the findings or outcomes of a Lighthouse Project into general policy recommendations that can be applied in the Baltic Sea Region and beyond. These recommendations are introduced and promoted on different political levels such as national governments, the European Commission and the United Nations.
