Description of the Baltic Sea Project
The Baltic Sea Project (BSP) 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 issues 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. 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. BSP Denmark has gained experience during the implementation of several European ESD projects, and through producing teachers’ guide about natural sciences, activities such as camps for students and teachers working on environment matters, training courses for teachers and setting up a school network for students and teachers.
