Plan Bothnia was also on the agenda during this weeks Nordic expert meeting on MSP (Ráðstevna um havið – 2030), organised in Torshavn (Faroe Islands) as part of Nordic Council of Ministers cooperation. Ms. Tiina Tihlman (Ministry of the Environment Finland) presented our project to the conference participants and the initiative was also mentioned by Mr. Sten Jerdenius (Ministry of the Environment, Sweden).
The good cooperation in the Baltic Sea was seen as a source of inspiration for the fledgling MSP cooperation in the west Nordic seas, the main topic of the meeting. This area includes marine jurisdictions of Iceland, Norway and Denmark (including Faroe Island and Greenland) and thus comprises a major part of the north-east Atlantic Ocean.
