The 3rd BONUS Symposium 14-16 March 2018: Climate change will lead to increased nutrient loads to the Baltic Sea but scenarios can help society shape and adapt to an uncertain future


During the three days of the Symposium “Sustainable Ecosystem Governance under Changing Climate and Land Use in the Baltic Sea Region”, results from the BONUS BALTICAPP, GO4BALTIC, MIRACLE and SOILS2SEA projects were on display and comprised a total of 47 oral and 24 poster presentations.

In the panel discussions, it was emphasised that science and policy should go hand in hand. Further, it was pointed out, that the four BONUS projects are very good examples of natural and social scientists working together, and that this approach should be taken forward. It was advised, that scientists must also concentrate on how their results can affect change and create an impact.
