COOL BLUE Baltic

Cultivate curiosity in coastal ecosystems and our relationship with the sea

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Fostering community and curiosity in coastal ecosystems through regenerative ocean farming, licensing frameworks, and MPA stewardship for sustainable sea farming initiatives

Cool Blue Baltic is about cultivating community. It’s also about cultivating curiosity in coastal ecosystems and our relationship with the sea. The project comprises co-assessment workshops as input for a regenerative action plan, including regional assessments of socioeconomics, technology, environmental impacts, data sharing, licensing as well as educational needs. These assessments will culminate in a common licensing framework for regenerative ocean farming, a data-sharing network and an MPA stewardship programme for the first ever generation of sea farmers to become custodians of our waters. These results will then be disseminated through 8 events in 8 Member States, to get the conversation started about regenerative aquaculture and what benefits it can bring to local communities, while recruiting community members to take up the challenge.
