    Circular and sharing economy as an answer to demographic changes and environmental challenges in the Baltic Sea Region will be the main theme of the 10th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in 2019 that will take place in Poland, Gdańsk, on 12-13 June 2019.

    It will be hosted by the Pomorskie Region together with the Baltic Sea States Subregional Co-operation (Eastern Norway County Network) in association with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland and in close cooperation with the European Commission.





    Since 2010 a yearly forum has been organised to support the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. It is an important gathering of EUSBSR stakeholders and institutions interested in cooperation for in-depth policy discussions with prime ministers, ministers and EU Commissioners on the latest developments and challenges within the Baltic Sea Region. The Forum will concentrate on actors that have real influence on EUSBSR implementation, including decision-makers, project-owners, researchers and public managers at all relevant governance levels. Special focus will be given to representatives of civil society and the private sector.


    Demographic changes in the Baltic Sea Region (ageing, depopulation, migration, urbanisation) influence our everyday behaviours and attitudes. They are expected to generate increasingly more significant consequences in many areas of human activity.


    Hence, the two key questions to be addressed at the Forum will be: what could be the role of circular and sharing economy in addressing the Baltic Sea Region demographic changes and environmental challenges and their consequences? How can public policy at all levels be re-shaped to best use circular and sharing economy to address the BSR’s demographic changes and environmental challenges as well as to improve its competitiveness and prosperity?


    The role of the Forum is to accelerate and generate ideas on how the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region can contribute to these themes.
