The HOLAS 3 report results unfortunately reaffirm the poor health of the Baltic Sea. Nevertheless, a glimmer of hope persists. The report acknowledges measures to alleviate pressure on the Baltic Sea are working when properly financed and implemented, but how can we accelerate this implementation? Bringing back a healthy Baltic Sea means funds and resources must be mobilized. To speed up these efforts our finance system needs also to transform to align investments with nature-positive principles and priorities but how could this be done?

Join us for an engaging panel discussion to answer these questions – what it will take to speed up the implementation and financing of the Baltic Sea Action Plan (BSAP) and explore solutions for a healthy Baltic Sea.
