Save the date for the international Expert’s Conference on the updated VASAB Vision - ‘Vibrant, Resilient, Well-connected – The Baltic Sea Region in 2040’ that will be held on 1 June in Wismar, Germany.

The VASAB conference will celebrate the completion of the VASAB Vision 2040 and participants will be invited to discuss:

  • How do we imagine the desired development of the Baltic Sea Region over the next two decades?
  • What will urban networks and rural settlements look like, how will they be connected physically and digitally?
  • How can we secure our energy supply in the face of climate change and political instability?
  • What will make our most precious commons, the livelihoods of millions in this region, its waters, lands and cultures more vibrant, resilient and well-connected?

Experts in the field of spatial planning and regional development will come together to discuss what the VASAB Vision means for the Baltic Sea Region and how each of us can contribute to making it a reality.

The Conference is organised jointly by the VASAB Secretariat and the Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building of Germany.
