Alternative scenarios for blue economies in the Gulf of Finland and Archipelago Sea

Page  In Finnish  /  In Estonian  /  In Swedish
Do we want to change the ways the sea areas are used now and in the future? The Plan4Blue project presents four scenarios for how our choices will affect people and the marine nature in the Gulf of Finland and the Archipelago Sea. The short animation presents four alternative future scenarios: “Unlimited growth”, “Virtual reality”, “Sustainability above all!” and “Sustainability dilemma”.
More detailed information on how the alternative scenarios would affect different sectors can be found in the infographs and  scenario report (pdf 2 MB).
