Young people in the Baltic Sea Region telling their visions how to create a future through a sustainable development.
A project involving cultural experience and stimulation aimed at inspiring for awareness and commitment to environmental issues among young people around the Baltic Sea. The objective is increased understanding, competence and activity, expandeed efforts for sustainable development with human collaboration and a long-range vision.
The Baltic Sea
Is our unifying water. Historically it has united, rather than separated. The flourishing cultural ties of the past are something we now have the oportunity to re-create. There must be no contamination of this, our common water. We shall therefore gather around a common theme, with common interests, for a common future. We do this in the “Baltic Sea Visions” project. The problems that the Baltic Sea has to contend with are in no way unique.
An environmental project
A project where young people aged between 15 and 20 through active sharing of contacts, common stimulation and personal initiatives, seek knowledge, formulate this and convey their message. A book, a film, a CD, a musical performance, a photographic and an art exbition will be produced under professional guidance. The project will include a number of seminars, lectures and excursions where young people can get involvet in various issues, meeting scientists, politicians and other important persons. The proyect involves both the fundamental study work and the practical production and, last but not leasr, participation in the follow-up task of reaching out to futher groups.
The process of using culture as a tool for expression in a cause of the outmost importance to all generations provides both better insight into the subject and experience of culture work in relation to society. It is ultimately a question of democracy througt the rigth to free speech and the participation of young people in the social and a sustainable development.
