The Forum was hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Estonia together with the Baltic Development Forum in close cooperation with the European Commission, Ministry of Environment and other partners. About 800 participants from governments, international organisations, NGOs, universities, local and regional administrations, media and businesses came together to discuss developments and challenges in the Baltic Sea Region.

The 9th Annual Forum was co-financed by the European Union Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme.  

The main theme of the 9th Annual Forum was the Baltic Sea Region After 2020. The Forum discussed how to improve the implementation of the EUSBSR in the framework of the future EU Cohesion Policy. It discussed also the current state of the ecosystem in the Baltic Sea as well as how to advance the Region as a global digital hub.

Have the efforts to save the Baltic Sea failed? The new study prepared for the forum, which analyses and provides guidance on how to improve the policies of the Baltic Sea Region will tell us: EUSBSR after 2020: governance remastered
