Workshops 2017

During Workshop, we will gather in smaller groups to discuss certain topics a little further in depth. Fifteen of SwAM’s experts will each host a workshop around an issue they are currently working on, and your ideas can contribute to a good outcome.

Workshop 2017

  • 1. Renewed efforts to reduce eutrophication

    Emmelie Johansson, SwAM
    Anders Grimvall and Eva-Lotta Sundblad, Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment (SIME)

    Much has already been done to reduce eutrophication in Sweden’s marine areas, and more measures are in the works. However, these efforts are not enough for us to achieve the Marine Environmental Regulation’s requirements or Sweden’s ”Zero Eutrophication” environmental objective. We need renewed efforts, and climate-related endeavors can show the way. Behavioral changes and societal shifts, in particular, can benefit the climate and even contribute to the minimization of marine eutrophication, such as through the production and consumption of food. How can we identify and utilize such synergies?

    In this workshop, SIME will talk about its analysis on how we as members of society can influence marine eutrophication. SwAM would like to know what you think the government can do to engage more people in its efforts.

  • 2. Marine litter – how will we manage it, now and in the future?

    Johanna Eriksson, (SwAM)
    Ulrika Marklund, Ren och Attraktiv Kust

    Martin Hassellöv, Per Nilsson and Florina Lachmann, Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment (SIME)

    Marine litter is one of our most critical problems and one of the largest environmental challenges, both internationally and along the Swedish coastline. For small developing island nations, the problem can have a particularly large impact. In this workshop, we’ll talk about the difficulties of dealing with marine litter, some of which has traveled a long way from its source to countries lacking in national mandates to address the influx. SwAM will discuss the problems and efforts in Sweden, and SIME will present its analysis of the situation for small developing island nations – nations that inevitably become part of the global flow of litter.

    In addition, the presenters would like to hear your thoughts on how current efforts to manage litter can be handled and improved, both in how we can assist small island nations in developing measures and in how we can improve efforts within Sweden.

  • 4. Can marine spatial planning help achieve the sustainable development goals?

    Joacim Johannesson and Tomas Andersson, SwAM
    Dr. Marius Claassen, CSIR South Africa
    Mr. Lisolomzi Fikizolo, Environmental Affairs, Oceans and Costs, South Africa
    Mr. Fred van Zyl, Department of Water and Sanitation, South Africa
    Mr. Sidnei da Costa Abrantes, Secretariat of the Interministerial Commission for the Resources of the Sea (SECIRM), Brazil.
    Mr Régis Pinto de Lima; Coastal Management, Department of Territorial Zoning, Ministry of Environment), Brazil

    This workshop is twice as long as the others and will be held only once.

    By 2030, the sustainable development goals (SDGs) regarding oceans are expected to be achieved, and one-third of the world’s Exclusive Economic Zones is to have marine spatial plans. Marine spatial planning (MSP) is increasingly being implemented worldwide to spatially organize marine activities in order to achieve environmental, social, and economic objectives.

    In this workshop, we'll look at how the MSP approach is implemented in various parts of the world. We’ll also learn about the challenges and opportunities of implementing MSP within different administrative, legal, and geographical contexts. We’ll discuss how MSP can support sustainable development and even explore its potential in supporting blue economy and social values while simultaneously safeguarding our marine resources for the future.

    This workshop is twice as long as the others and will be held only once.
