With our Christmas donation, we support the activities of the John Nurminen Foundation to save the Baltic Sea and its heritage.
Eutrophication is one of the biggest threats to the Baltic Sea. Its most visible signs are blue-green algae blooms, clouding of the water, siltation of beaches and lack of oxygen in the bottom areas. At the same time, the threat is that the valuable cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea will disappear.
The John Nurminen Foundation combats these problems, e.g. with its marine environment projects. The projects focus on reducing the phosphorus load in the Baltic Sea with concrete actions. The foundation also nurtures, enlivens and conveys stories and cultural heritage related to the sea.
