LiveLagoons - The use of active barriers for the nutrient removal and local water quality improvement in Baltic lagoons (Seed Money)

Project description

The future Living Lagoons project aims to introduce innovative small-scale green technologies to trap and remove nutrients at South Baltic lagoon beaches in order to decrease the pollution discharges to the Baltic Sea and to strengthen the environmental sustainability of lagoon communities. Project plans to have four main steps - (i) stocktaking of the best available green technologies for trapping and removing nutrients from the shallow lagoon waters adjacent to the beaches that can be suitable for bathing; (ii) building a network of communities and stakeholders interested to test the green technologies of nutrient trapping and removal in practice; (iii) implementation of the living barriers at selected pilot sites; (iv) transfer of acquired knowledge and dissemination of good practices to other South Baltic lagoon communities and beyond.
