The EUSBSR has created a coherent and structured framework for joint actions to address common challenges and mobilize macro-regional resources in the Baltic Sea Region; many are those who have been given formal roles and responsibilities in accordance with the Action Plan. The long-term viability of the Strategy is nevertheless dependent upon continued efforts to secure the engagement and active involvement also of actors that are not formally charged with “duties” in accordance with the EUSBSR and its Action Plan, e.g. local and regional authorities, business, academia and civil society organisations. One venue well suited to achieve this aim is the Annual Forums with the Networking Village.

Besides plenary sessions and seminars participants in the Annual Forums need a meeting place where they can discuss their ideas for cooperation with PACs/HACs or ask questions on how to get involved in our development processes. This is also the place where our flagships can present their results and meet with potential partners. This year we return to what before has been an integrated part of our Annual Forums, the Networking Village. Some of you remember these meeting places from the Forums in Turku, Jūrmala, Vilnius, Gdansk and Copenhagen.

In Tallinn we will have five stands (se illustration below). Three of them for our Policy Areas, grouped around the three overall objectives. One stand for our Horizontal Actions and a fifth one for the EU Commission. Each of the stands are equipped with a desk, a place to put information material, a screen (with a lap top) and a place to put a role-up. You as PAC or HAC are welcome to use these stands for presenting your PA/HA, your flagships and for holding meetings with participants in the Forum. With more than one PA/HA in each stand we prepare a rolling scheme where you as PAC/HAC sign up for a time slot (30 minutes) when you or someone representing your PA/HA will be present at the stand. At each stand there will be “Today’s programme” where the visitors can read when each PA/HA will be present. You as PA/HA can also schedule meetings at the stand, outside your timeslot when you would like to meet with participants. Close to the stand there are chairs/tables where you can hold your meetings. The Networking Village will be the meeting point in the heart of the Forum.HA Capacity will take care of the hosting, making sure someone always will be at the stand, keep it clean and be able to answer more general questions.

Enclosed you will find a picture of the stand and a plan of the Networking Village. We need your answer with a request for a time slot at the latest on 30 April. Please register here for your time slot: https://goo.gl/forms/xGEjaabbyqfeMXBz2

Until then we need also the videos or slide shows you would like to present at the screen. We will inform you later on when and where we need your information material and roll-ups.
