Baltic Sea Day 26 August 2020
The Baltic Sea Day, launched by the John Nurminen Foundation, is an annual day of celebration in honour of the sea. The objective of the day is to encourage people to enjoy the unique sea that belongs to us all, and to take concrete actions that benefit the sea. In addition to the celebrations, the purpose of the Baltic Sea Day is to provide information on the versatile nature, culture, and history of the Sea.
Every last Thursday in August – join in!
The Baltic Sea Day is celebrated every year on the last Thursday in August with various rallies and events. There are many ways for you to participate, so do join in!
“The Baltic Sea deserves a designated day of its own. The Baltic Sea Day initiated by the John Nurminen Foundation and held on the last Thursday of each August celebrates the fine narrative and future of the Baltic Sea. The Foundation has invited all of us to take part. In these exceptional times, the Baltic Sea Day brings people together in new ways: events and emotions can be shared virtually. Through joint efforts, we can make the Baltic Sea Day a successful event, and all of us can contribute in our own ways.
I thank the John Nurminen Foundation for this initiative. I wish the organisers and their partners every success in creating an inspiring Baltic Sea Day and wish you all an enjoyable time.”
– Sauli Niinistö, President of the Republic of Finland in his greeting to the Baltic Sea Day
