Ocean Acidification (OA) caused by carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels puts our seas at danger. Corals, cod, salmon, shrimps and shellfish are among the organisms at peril, together with whole ecosystems. The threats to nature are also a great concern for humans, and affect everyone who benefits from nature and the sea – for work, for leisure, and for inspiration.
The conference is arranged by AirClim and Novia UAS as part of the BALSAM project (Baltic Sea Acidification Mitigation; funded by the Swedish Institute) in collaboration with Ecoaction (Ukraine), Friends of the Baltic (Russia), and Polish Ecological Club Pomeranian Branch (Poland).
The NGOs working in the BALSAM project strongly encourage other NGOs and all those concerned about our seas to take action to highlight OA – a phenomenon that is still not well known to everyone.
