Through the project we want to raise awareness about the critical condition of the Baltic Sea. Our ambition is to raise 100.000 € for concrete actions to save the Baltic Sea.
The Finnish archipelago and the shores of the Baltic Sea have been our home since childhood. Today the Baltic Sea is in critical condition and is considered one of the most polluted seas in the world. The most severe problems are hazardous substances, risk related to marine traffic, loss of biodiversity and eutrophication. The Baltic Sea can still be saved but will require immediate actions. We have two organizations as our charity partners, John Nurminen Foundation and Keep the Archipelago Tidy association. They work with slightly different focus but they share the same mission when it comes to saving waterways, the archipelago and the Baltic Sea for coming generations. The goal is to raise awareness and encourage people to donate for their great work/causes to save the Baltic Sea.
The mission of John Nurminen Foundation is to save the Baltic Sea and its heritage for future generations. They implement concrete Baltic Sea protection measures that bring results, and ensure that the stories of the sea are passed on to future generations. Their work is guided by measurable results and impact. What benefits the Baltic Sea is the one and only goal that steers the operations. www.johnnurmisensaatio.fi
Keep the Archipelago Tidy association maintains environmentally important services, such as dry toilets, pump-out stations and waste collection points on all the main coastal and lake areas in Finland. The aim for this concrete environmental work is to make sustainable boating and recreation by Finnish waterways possible. www.pidasaaristosiistina.fi
