March 5 Friends of the Baltic NGO participated in the meeting in the premises of the HELCOM Secretariat in Helsinki, where environmental organizations discussed the implementation of the Baltic Sea Action Plan (BSAP), which expires in 2020. The meeting was organized by the Coalition Clean Baltic (CCB) and the Baltic Environment Forum Group (BEF).

It was discussed how the BSAP is being implemented and what needs to be updated on current issues related to eutrophication, biodiversity and hazardous substances, and how to ensure the participation and consideration of public organizations in the BSAP audit process.

Microplastics is a new topic for schools, but that is why it is relevant. Teachers are interested in training on the methodology of  microplastics and marine litter research.. Schools represented at the workshop, located in the basins of the Black river, Shingarka and Karasta.

Environmental challenges of Luga region

The condition of sewage treatment plants in small towns and villages is a challenge for present and future generations. Local residents discovered a gap in the concrete lining of sludge maps of sewage treatment plants  in autumn 2018 - fenced land for drying sludge. Through the hole sewage flowed out to the side of the river Luga. We decided to check how things are going after a few months.  "Friends of the Baltic" met with residents of the Luga region and discussed their concernson December 25.

Our friends and partners gathered on New Year’s Eve to discuss important environmental issues and outputs of last year’s projects: more than 20 public river watchers joined us, thus 27 new marks appeared on the map. Clicking on them, one will learn the river nitrate and microplastics content .

The waste managment system reform in Russia started On the first January 2019. It changed the amount of utility bills-in particular for the removal of waste.  Is it possible to deal with their own waste management? How can waste be collected separately? What should a site for separate waste accumulation look like? Who should be responsible for implementing the separate fee? It was discussed at the round table "Formats of separate waste accumulation in St. Petersburg and Leningrad region", organized by "RazDelny sbor" https://vk.com/wall-31712887_52200
