The environmental impact of shipping in the Baltic Sea is not widely known. How have decades of unclean air emissions affected the people and the sea? Why are passengers on cruise ships allowed to defecate into the Baltic Sea? How can that be tolerated and who can put a stop to it? Following acclaimed and award-winning films about fishing, eutrophication and chemicals, Folke Rydén is now releasing his fourth film about the Baltic Sea.
Skansen and BalticSea2020 are starting a collaboration to save the Baltic and make it a much healthier sea. This is an investment of 100 million SEK with the aim of creating an educational centre for both school classes and everyone else visiting Skansen. Visitors will be able to experience the condition of the Baltic Sea beneath its surface in newly created aquariums and will have the opportunity to discover previously unknown aspects of the Baltic in displays and laboratories. Our ambition is to increase people’s awareness of how the 90 million people who live in the Baltic Sea region can improve the conditions for a cleaner inland sea.
