Book the date for Joint Beach Clean-up Day

Join us in the beach cleaning event closest to you to celebrate European cooperation on 19 September!

The European Cooperation Day is about showing the power of working together on a joint challenge. The amount of trash in the Baltic Sea and on its shores is our joint problem that none of us can tackle alone. Rubbish disposed to the sea at one place will end up in another place before we know it.

The Central Baltic Programme funds international projects working on joint challenges. To underline the importance of the work usually taking place in a number of these cooperation projects, we celebrate the European Cooperation Day by cleaning our sea together with our neighbours in other countries. Now everyone can join!

During the joint beach clean-up day on 19 September we are cleaning beaches in Treimani (Estonia), Yyteri (Finland), Ainaži (Latvia), Oxelösund (Sweden) and Mariehamn (Åland). 
Together, through cooperation, we are making a difference all over the Baltic Sea Region! Let's celebrate by working on a joint challenge together and seeing how much fun it can be.
Join us in Facebook for more information about the events at
Joint Central Baltic Beach Clean-up Day.
