Registration for the Baltic Sea Forum in Tallinn is prolonged until 17 March. The forum entitled “Water protection in municipalities – it costs money, because it saves money” gives water protection tools for municipalities: monetary arguments, communication and networking.
Cities and municipalities are key actors when it comes to concrete, local water protection measures. Cities directly benefit from coastal waters, but they also have a high impact on them. There is a range of possibilities for cities and municipalities to influence the state of local waters, through measures such as waste water treatment and storm water handling. However, in order to prioritize water protection within municipalities, the way of communicating is crucial. For this, we need monetary arguments and tailored messages for civil servants and citizens.
The Baltic Sea Forum gives tools for municipalities’ water protection work: environmental communication, cost-benefit analysis, networking, discussions and practical examples.
The Baltic Sea Forum is organized as part of the Estonian municipality days. The Forum is an international Baltic Sea Challenge networking event, organised by the EU Life+ funded CITYWATER project in cooperation with the Association of Estonian Cities (Eesti Linnade Liit).
Participation in the Baltic Sea Forum is free of charge. The program is in English and Estonian with simultaneous translation.
