Capacity4MSP Workshop: Vision and Strategies for Coherent MSP Framework

Capacity4MSP Workshop: Vision and Strategies for Coherent MSP Framework

About event

The online workshop ‘Vision and Strategies for Coherent MSP Framework’ will take place on 2 December 2021, 9-12 CET. Workshop is organised within the project platform Capacity4MSP in a close cooperation with process of the VASAB Lon-Term Perspective update.

How would a desired Baltic Sea look like by 2040? How do we envision the maritime spatial planning and management by 2040? What do we wish to look different from today?

Visions and scenario processes are a powerful approach to imagine desirable futures, often used at the initial stages of the MSP process. VASAB has been one of the pioneers in developing visions, dating back to the first VASAB vision ‘VASAB 2010. Towards a Framework for Spatial Development in the Baltic Sea Region’ in 1994. Recently, VASAB launched the update of its Long-Term Perspective for the Territorial Development of the Baltic Sea Region – strategic spatial planning document targeted towards territorial coherence in 2040.

The workshop will present VASAB work towards coherent MSP Framework in the Baltic Sea and share existing practices in visioning processes in MSP, identified by Capacity4MSP project platform and applied practice around the Baltic Sea Region countries. Building on shared experience, the workshop will proceed with co-creative work for the update of the VASAB Long-Term Perspective. Going through the four metaphors of the vision, i.e., the pearls, the strings, the patches and the system, each representing a different territorial element, participants will share their views how these metaphors are related to MSP and what should be addressed by VASAB Vision 2040.
