Dialogue was a project idea that 14 partners developed and applied for funding through the Baltic Sea Region programme 2007 – 2013.

The Lisbon/Gothenburg strategies underline the integration of environment, economy and social conditions equally in sustainable development.

In an EU context there is increased political awareness of the problem, unfortunately it has been difficult to demonstrate effective means of interventions to counteract the development.
