Welcome to the Network of
Botanic Gardens in the Baltic Sea Region!
 
 
After the great political shifts around 1990 cooperation across the Baltic Sea has developed freely and vigorously in many fields - cultural, educational, economic, environmental to mention a few.
Botanic gardens with their multi-embracing range of activities might be expected to have a role to play in that context.

Following a proposal from the County Governor of Gotland, Sweden, the Botanic Garden in Visby has initiated cooperation between Botanic Gardens situated at or close to the Baltic Sea.

Various factors in common - geographical, environmental, climatological, historical and cultural-would speak in favour for a network between those gardens.

A first aim was to make clear whether there are specific themes in which these gardens are interested to exchange experience and develop projects in common. To that end one garden from each of the nine countries around
the Baltic was invited to a meeting in Visby in January 2008.
That meeting decided to go further and the organizing group called for a second meeting in September 9-12 2008 with invitations to 25 botanic gardens, 21 of which had the possibility to attend.

Then the meetings took place in Vilnius (September 2009) and Tartu
(September – October 2010).
