We assist local authorities in the Baltic Sea Region in initiating, applying and managing projects on different sustainability topics. The themes and actions are tailor-made based on the needs of the project partners from local authorities to assist the ongoing processes towards sustainable development. More information can be found on projects description pages below.
Eliminating Micro-Pollutants from Effluents for Reuse Strategies
The EMPEREST project supports local authorities, service providers and policy-making community by strengthening the sustainable water management cycle. The holistic approach to the elimination of PFAS and other persistent organic pollutants incorporates regional strategies for monitoring and assessment, technological advances in wastewater treatment, and risk management assessment for cities.
Baltic Approaches to Handling Plastic Pollution under a Circular Economy Context
The project's main objective is to identify, test and deploy concrete solutions to handle and reduce the flow of plastic waste to the Baltic Sea, under the lenses of a circular economy. It will do so with the consortium of key actors in the plastic waste value chain, namely local authorities, universities and research institutions, associations and NGOs, as well as SMEs and large enterprises in the participating countries, that operate in the waste management field.
European City Facility
The European City Facility (EUCF) is an initiative to support local investments in sustainable energy. The objective of the EUCF is to is to facilitate access to private and EU financing along with access to technical, legal and financial expertise. In the long run the aim is to deliver at least 200 investment concepts in cities and municipalities all over Europe.
The cooperation between UBC and CDP started in the beginning of 2017 with a Memorandum of Understanding signed in the autumn of 2016. Since 2017, the Baltic Sea Region cities have become the forerunners in environmental reporting and in 2020 became the largest participating area in CDP reporting.
Community safety action for supporting climate adaptation and development
CASCADE aimed to improve the capacity to understand, assess, and treat current and future climate change related risks on the local level, focusing on the particular in Baltic Sea Region (BSR) conditions.
Holistic Urban and Peri-urban Mobility
Holistic urban and peri-urban mobility project aimed to provide a holistic approach to sustainable mobility solutions in cities and their perimeters in Baltic Sea port cities.

cities.multimodal – urban transport system in transition towards low carbon mobility
The project wants to make it easier for people in cities around the Baltic Sea to combine walking, cycling, public transport and car-sharing as an environmentally friendly alternative to using private cars. The cooperation between cities, NGOs and expert partners aims at developing and applying a low-threshold approach for environmentally friendly urban mobility, attractive and easy to adopt for follower cities. The project focuses on dense inner-city areas, offering good opportunities for sustainable mobility
Climate Adaptation Trainings
Urban Climate Change Adaptation in the Baltic Sea Region
The initiative Urban Climate Change Adaptation in the Baltic Sea Region was a one-year project providing opportunities for capacity building, training and applying the skills to existing situations in the adaptation to climate change in the cities of the region. The project focused on establishing connections between climate change and sustainable development of urban areas.
Sustainable mobility solutions in suburban districts and innovative urban freight logistics
Within CIVITAS ECCENTRIC, the cities of Madrid, Stockholm, Munich, Turku and Ruse worked together to tackle the challenges of mobility in suburban districts and clean, silent and CO2 free city logistics, two important areas that had previously received less attention in urban mobility policies.
European Programme for Accelerating the Take up of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans
CIVITAS SUMPs-Up promoted and supported a broad take-up of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) in European cities.
