Welcome to find support for water protection!

Welcome to finding information, examples and practical tips for water protection!

Tools for water protection is a web-based toolbox providing support for implementing water protection actions at local level. It is designed for professionals and experts who do concrete work, strategic planning or make decisions on water protection in cities, municipalities, companies, NGOs or other organisations.

The Toolbox provides information and tools that assist with water protection. In addition to practical tips, tools and background information, in the Bank of Actions you can browse actions that local organisations have already implemented for the protection of local waters and the Baltic Sea – and you can also share your organisation’s own actions!

This site was established in 2015 by the EU Life+ funded project CITYWATER, in collaboration with the Baltic Sea Challenge. The first tools are based on the results of the CITYWATER project. The site is now managed and updated by the Baltic Sea Challenge. More tools and actions are needed – please contact us and tell us about your ideas!

In June and July 2016 Green planet NGO provided an ecological camp "Baltic Investigators" for students interested in environment and nature conservation. The camp was organized in Kaliningrad region, at Primorye village, at the Baltic coast. There were altogether four groups of students who visited the camp and participated in the training, each for one week.



The program of the ecological camp included both an educational part and actions to clean-up the Baltic coast to offer the students both theoretical knowledge and concrete examples. During trainings students explored the environment and different ecosystems (Baltic Sea, freshwater bodies, forest, meadow), and discussed the different ways of protection and sustainable development of coastal areas. As a concrete action, each group also participated in action to clean up the garbage from the beach.
