Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS) – Baltic 2030
Over the past 20 years the CBSS Expert Group on Sustainable Development - Baltic 2030 has acted as a macro-regional expression of the global UN Agenda 21 and collected a significant experience of working on sustainable development issues in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR). Our members are various government ministries and agencies from the 11 Baltic Sea states (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden), the European Commission, numerous intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations, academic and financial institutions, as well as local, city and sector networks.
The overall mission of the CBSS Baltic 2030 is to facilitate and support macroregional engagement in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to foster coordinated sustainable development governance through mutual learning, exchanging and dissemination of best practices.
The CBSS Baltic 2030 Unit is acting as the Leader of Horizontal Action CLIMATE of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. Key strategic areas of cooperation include climate change adaptation and low carbon development. Implementation the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a challenge, but it is also an opportunity for sustainable transformation of the Baltic Sea region, therefore the CBSS continues its efforts to reach it, therefore we are happy to support the European Sustainable Development Week 30 May – 5 June 2018.
