About the campaign

Rock the Baltic Sea is a campaign initiated to increase awareness about water protection and the challenges the Baltic Sea has faced for many years and still struggles to tackle.

The Baltic Sea is our common brackish water sea that borders with Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. The size of the catchment area of the Baltic Sea is 2.13 million km². 85 million people from 14 countries live in that area.

The idea of the Rock the Baltic Sea campaign is to raise awareness about  the problems of the Baltic Sea by getting more people to sign up and join the challenge.


Let’s all pledge to more actions to benefit the Baltic Sea, let's Rock the Baltic Sea!

Rock The Baltic Sea 2017

The campaign in 2017 was organized by WATERCHAIN project that aims to help to reduce inflows of nutrients and hazardous substances to the Baltic Sea from all types of land-based sources by using pilot watersheds and environmental technology. The project tackles both highly developed intensely populated cities as well as less developed peripheral, sparsely populated rural and island regions in pilot watersheds.

By year 2023, as a result of the project, the pollution loads of nutrients and hazardous substances from targeted sources are reduced in pilot watersheds flowing into the Baltic Sea. Therefore, project results have a direct impact on the quality of living environment of local people and visitors to the area, especially on pilot watersheds.
