Want to learn more about climate change in the Baltic Sea and get to know the latest facts?We are inviting you to attend the media launch of the Baltic Sea Climate Change Fact Sheet on 3 September 2021. Hosted by Baltic Earth and HELCOM, the event will be held online.

About the Climate Change Fact Sheet
The Baltic Sea Climate Change Fact Sheet provides the latest scientific knowledge on how climate change is currently affecting the Baltic Sea and about what we can expect to happen in the future. A complete yet concise and easy to read publication, the Fact Sheet will help policy makers to include climate change considerations in their work and decisions. More broadly, it also seeks to inform the general public about the effects of climate change in the Baltic Sea. Jointly developed by Baltic Earth and HELCOM, the Fact Sheet contains information about 34 parameters ranging from air and water temperature to marine and coastal ecosystem services, grouped into six different categories: energy cycle, water cycle, carbon and nutrient cycles, sea level and wind, biota and ecosystems, human activities, and services. 

The media launch is open to all media representatives and will be held online on Zoom. Register now to receive the meeting link and additional instructions.
