Krista Kampus, Sustainable Development Unit – Baltic 2030, Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS)
Krista Kampus, Senior Adviser and Head of the Sustainable Development Unit – Baltic 2030 at the CBSS Secretariat, is one of the speakers at Baltic Sea Future.
The Council of the Baltic Sea States is an overall political forum for regional inter-governmental cooperation. The Members of the Council are the eleven states of the Baltic Sea Region as well as the European Commission. The role of the Council is to serve as a forum for guidance and overall coordination among the participating states. The priorities of the CBSS Swedish Presidency 2017-2018 are Sustainability, Continuity and Adaptability, which are all under the umbrella of Agenda 2030. Sweden considers it of importance to continue with work and projects that are successful in promoting the CBSS long term strategies, addressing everything from human trafficking and organised crime to the quality of the Baltic Sea, climate change and migration.
Expert Group on Sustainable Development – Baltic 2030
Over the past 20 years the CBSS Expert Group on Sustainable Development (EGSD-Baltic 2030) has acted as a macro-regional expression of the global UN Agenda 21 and collected a significant experience of working on sustainable development issues in the Baltic Sea Region. Our members are various government ministries and agencies from the 11 Baltic Sea states, numerous pan-Baltic and international organizations, NGOs, academia as well as local and city networks.
The overall current mission of the EGSD-Baltic 2030 is to facilitate, support and promote macro-regional engagement in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the operationalisation of its goals and targets. EGSD-Baltic 2030 facilitates and monitors the implementation of the Baltic 2030 Action Plan, which was endorsed by the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Baltic Sea Region and a representative of the EU at the Ministerial by the adoption of the Reykjavík Declaration on 20 June 2017.
