The Baltic Sea Action Group ( BSAG) is a part of the Foundation for a Living Baltic Sea. It is devoted to rescuing the Baltic Sea with carefully chosen projects. BSAG is responsible of the content of the Summit and for gathering the commitments.
To carry out the actions necessary to save the Baltic Sea, heads of state and government, corporations, business leaders and NGO’s must all work together. For this purpose, the President of the Republic of Finland, Tarja Halonen, together with Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen of Finland and the Chairman of the Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG), Ilkka Herlin, have launched a joint initiative: The Baltic Sea Action Summit 2010 (BSAS).
