UBC delegation met the Government of St. Petersburg

On 29 November 2018, within the framework of the International Youth Forum of the Baltic Sea States, the Government of St. Petersburg hosted a round table on the strategic interaction of St. Petersburg with the Union of Baltic Cities.

The parties discussed the prospects for bilateral cooperation and identified priority areas for the next year. One of the main issues discussed at the round table was the meeting of the UBC Executive Board in St. Petersburg in March 2019.

Eyes on the Horizon exhibition

Espoo has more islands than Hawaii and the whole coastline is in the public’s free use. Nowadays the Waterfront Walkway and the archipelago are beloved recreational destinations and nature is thought by many to be the best thing about Espoo. For thousands of years the sea has provided a living for both coastal and island inhabitants. The Eyes on the Horizon exhibition tells about seaside Espoo from the perspective of changes faced in livelihoods, leisurely pursuits and in nature over the years. The maritime scenery leads visitors to explore marine themes and atmospheres.
