Baltic Sea Savers

In September 2016, a social media campaign was launched to save the Baltic Sea. The aim of the campaign was to make everybody, especially youngsters, aware of the water quality issues of the Baltic Sea. In Finland, the Baltic Sea Savers campaign was launched in a school in Eurajoki as a part of the teaching process with 7th graders including activities in Finnish language, chemistry and art. The pupils evaluated the meaning of Eurajoki river in their own life, collected information on the river water quality and analyzed how the river affects the state of the Baltic Sea. As an activating element there was an art competition in the social media.

The Baltic Sea Savers art competition happened simultaneously in all WaterChain partner countries: Finland, Sweden, Åland, Estonia and Latvia. The artworks for the competition were published either in Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. See the artworks in the video below.
