Introduction to the Fruit Basket, project Output Library

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Programme 2007-2013 financed in total 90 transnational cooperation projects covering a wide scope of themes. In order to share the work done with you, the Programme has created this online basket of projects – a Fruit Basket if you will (formally called the Output Library).

The Fruit Basket may be used for diverse purposes. For example, when you have a specific challenge in your area with regard to transport, you may want to find out what has been done previously in that area and you will most likely find useful documents that would increase your knowledge in the specific topic. Take your pick!

Film: Ripples on Baltic Waters
Date:
Sep 2014
Description:
In Ripples on Baltic waters you meet three farmers from Latvia, Sweden and Germany that produce food and energy in a way that is good for the environment and society as a whole. By establishing wetlands, recycling toilet waste and using animal manure in a smart way they reduce nutrient leakage from the fields. If more farmers follow their lead, the Baltic Sea and watercourses in the region will have a brighter future. The Latvian farmer introduced in the film, Juris Cirulis, who runs the Mezaciruli family farm, was subsequently awarded the WWF Baltic Farmer of the Year Award for 2014.
