The ‘Our Baltic Conference’ on 29 September 2023 will examine environment and fisheries, economic activity and unexploded munitions
Approximately 300,000 tonnes of unexploded munitions lie at the bottom of the Baltic Sea
Concerned about this situation, the European Commission is organising the 2nd edition of the ‘Our Baltic Conference’ in Palanga, Lithuania on 29 September 2023.
This high-level event will bring together ministers from the 8 EU countries surrounding the Baltic Sea; Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Finland and Sweden.
Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius and ministers will look at what has been achieved since the first Our Baltic Conference in 2020, and what still needs to be done.
