  • Workshop

The Sustainable Islands event aims to foster multidisciplinary dialogue and discussion in sustainability around the Baltic Sea area. We wish to provide an interactive space and enable the individuals who live and work on Gotland (SWE) and Åland (FIN) to break down sustainability issues.

Development often happens in different little bubbles; therefore, it is important to create a safe space for collaboration, inspiration and innovation, which we hope for during the event. We want to warmly welcome you, stakeholders from the region, universities, businesses, producers, NGOs, and individuals from Gotland and Åland. Let’s your valuable work around sustainable practices, actions, thoughts and interests to light and bond for similar goals and achievements.
