About BSP

The Baltic Sea Project is an international network among schools for a better environment in the Baltic catchment area. The countries bordering on the Baltic share many environmental problems, one of which is the pollution of the Baltic Sea. These problems can only be solved by cooperation among those countries, which have different languages, cultures, habits, traditions and technical standards. In attempting to solve the environmental problems, education is one of the key factors. The Baltic Sea Project (BSP) has therefore initiated cooperation among schools in all the countries around the Baltic. Today, some 200 schools are active in the BSP. Most are secondary schools situated on the Baltic coast, but the number of inland schools from the entire catchment area is increasing. In many schools, the BSP has been organized as a joint effort including many subjects.

Water quality in the Baltic Sea

The condition of the sea is primarily determined by investigating the living organisms in the water and sediment.
