Cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region

Poland leads the way in creating the region’s cultural policy

Polish involvement in the development of cultural cooperation in the Baltic Sea region is based on the three institutional pillars:

  • The Council of Baltic Sea States (CBSS)
  • Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture (NDPC)
  • EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR)

The coming years offer a unique opportunity for an effective and wide-ranged promotion of Polish culture in the region, in view of the compliance of the Polish Leadership in the most important areas of cooperation:

  • culture has been included as a priority in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region at the initiative of Poland and the Schleswig-Holstein Land
  • since February 2013, Poland together with the Schleswig-Holstein Land coordinates the Priority Area Culture of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region
  • since January 2014, Poland holds the Leadership of the Northern Dimension Partnership, which has been extended until May 2015 due to the commitment of our country

from July 2015 to June 2016, Poland will hold the Presidency of the Council of the Baltic Sea States.
