‘Gotland, the region of the Baltic Sea and the agriculture sector – new efforts, new solutions’
Every summer, the parliamentary parties of Sweden present their politics according to a rolling timetable during a week in Visby, on the Baltic island of Gotland. Also, around 1400 events are arranged during the week and some of them focus on the environment of the Baltic Sea. The project ’Baltic Manure’ was presented at one seminar in Visby on the 6th of July 2011, which concerned ‘Gotland, Östersjöregionen och lantbruket - nya satsningar, nya lösningar’ (‘Gotland, the region of the Baltic Sea and the agriculture sector – new efforts, new solutions’). Lena Rodhe from JTI in Sweden presented the Baltic Manure project during 15 minutes, followed by questions. Also, two other projects financed by BSRP were presented, namely ‘Baltic Compass’ and ‘Baltic deal’, respectively. In the audience, there were parliament members, policy makers, representatives for different societies present as well as some farmers. After the presentations there were discussions, which continued during the buffet in the garden of the county governor.
