Let’s eat the Baltic Sea clean! Challenge

Turku Finnish Co-educational Upper Secondary School invites all Finnish upper secondary schools to join Let’s eat the Baltic Sea clean! Challenge.

The national Baltic Sea Day launched by the John Nurminen Foundation is held on 27 August 2020. We wish to challenge all upper secondary school students to eat local Baltic Sea fish on that day. Make sure that your school serves local fish on the Baltic Sea Day and introduce local fish to your menus for good.

We can remove phosphorus from our waters by eating Finnish fish. Phosphorus removal reduces eutrophication in the Baltic Sea, and eating fish promotes health and improves learning. By eating local fish, we can fill our bellies with Finnish delicacies. We also support local fishing, the benefits of which spread throughout the Finnish coast through drainage areas.
