Closed for registration

Join us in Copenhagen on Monday the 29th of April as we host the Danish leg of the 9-month long, 6000km “Save the Baltic Sea” Expedition.

This group is traversing the entire coastline of the Baltic Sea to engage with local and national organizations and galvanize efforts to combat marine pollution sources.

Come and hear the Hiking groups’s environmental and adventure-perspectives, as we gather some of the biggest voices in marine pollution from civic society, government, retail and academia for an informative and dynamic event with a view at The National Aquarium Denmark – Den Blå Planet.

The event will kick-off with a complimentary breakfast before we have four 20-minute talks from a few interesting voices, followed by a 40-minute panel discussion. Following the event there will be a complementary lunch and guided tour of the National Aquarium, where you can learn about the consequences that climate change, pollution and environmental crises have on the oceans breath-taking animal kingdom.
