On 12 December 2013 representatives of the Baltic Sea Region pan-Baltic organizations, PACs/HALs/NCPs of the EU Baltic Sea Region Strategy, VASAB cooperation partners and flagship project partners will come together to summarize the current status of implementation of the VASAB Long-Term Perspective for Territorial Development and discuss the ways how to carry out a harmonized stakeholder dialogue towards a well-integrated and coherent Baltic Sea macro-region. The VASAB stakeholder meeting will contribute to the upcoming VASAB Ministerial Conference.
Today, on 3 October 2013, at HELCOM Ministerial Meeting in Copenhagen VASAB handed over a statement on cooperation with HELCOM on maritime spatial planning issues.
In the statement VASAB appreciates the work carried out jointly by VASAB and HELCOM towards better coordination of maritime spatial planning processes in the Baltic Sea Region.
The primary target group for this course includes professionals from the different institutions involved in MSP in the Baltic Sea Region. A second target group comprises NGOs and consulting companies working or preparing to work with MSP and assist with MSP implementation in the Region, as well as Master students with special interest in MSP.
Deadline for applications is 30th June 2013.
To ensure sustainable and integrated planning across the BSR PartiSEApate project will focus on engaging transnational, national and regional bodies as well as sectors and researchers in a series of dialogues on a pan-Baltic level.
Through these workshops, stakeholders will gain an understanding of what MSP means to them and why it is important to treat certain topics on a transnational level. Planners will in turn get an insight into their priorities, objectives, expectations, fears and hopes. Initial workshops will be devoted to only one sector/topic each, so as to focus the discussions.
