The Baltic Sea is a connecting element for all of us, the core of the region. At the same time the sea is one of the most polluted water bodies of the world and a very vulnerable ecosystem. The Baltic Sea has a multifunctional role for the whole region; a transport route, a source for fish and seafood, leisure and wellbeing, tourism and also a source for water. Blue growth is a key area of interest for the Baltic Sea region much due to these reasons. Many UBC cities have big ports and are specialized in high quality shipbuilding. This section of the Hub aims to cover the above-mentioned issues, providing the users with relevant and up-to-date information aimed at improving the state of our sea and coastal area.
