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
  • environmental safety 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.
