Turku UAS highlights solutions for protecting the Baltic Sea at the Europe Forum

Turku University of Applied Sciences is participating in the Europe Forum on the Baltic Sea theme. Our Baltic Sea seminar on 30 August can be followed on site or online.

The Europe Forum is the sixth Citizens' Forum, bringing together decision-makers and citizens. This year’s theme of the Europe Forum is a Changing Europe. The theme is intended to stimulate public debate on the forces of change that are shaking Europe.

The Baltic Sea is one of the most polluted and sensitive sea areas in the world. Increasing maritime traffic, eutrophication and invasive species are a threat to the sea. Improving the state of the sea is a common concern for all the countries around the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea is an important research focus for Turku UAS. We do active research to keep it healthy and diverse for posterity.
