Turning sea transportation threats into sea transportation opportunities on the Baltic Sea

Timezone: GMT+02:00


Event type: science cafe

Description:There is a saying that every port in the world has at least one Estonian in it. Estonians pride themselves with being a sea nation, expert fishermen and ancient shipbuilders. Nowadays, sea remains a place to build your cottage next to and tip your toes in once in a while, but when talking about transport, it is all about trains and planes. The descendants of Vikings have become landlubbers. The economical promises of sea transport are huge: minimal infrastructure requirements, advancing cargo ship technology, unused capacity. If ships don’t transport our goods, then some other type of vehicle will, potentially impacting our nature even more. Sea might be the right choice, if you look at the environment as a whole. GET STARTED! FOLLOW OUR WORKSHOP AND SHARE YOUR IDEAS ONLINE! It will involve citizens, scientists, business representatives, entrepreneurs, local authorities and policymakers in an open dialogue. Together, you will define a common vision and a roadmap of solutions and actions to face this challenge. The results, together with the outcomes of the other MARINA workshops in Europe, will be freely accessible on the MARINA Web Knowledge Sharing Platform, used for identifying lessons learned and best practices and disseminated at European policy conferences.
