actors on local, regional, national and pan-Baltic level has been improved as well. Regular meetings and news exchange led to a trustful cooperation atmosphere. Another result was the foundation of a group that is developing the instrument called “BALTIC SEA CULTURAL CITIES – Connecting Citizens & Cities through Culture”. This initiative targets the “Connect the Region” objectives of the Strategy in a thorough way. It shall help strengthening cultural ties in the region, citizen participation and people-to-people contacts, also with the non-EU countries of the region. One of the success stories is the project “BalticRIM – Baltic Sea Region Integrated Maritime Cultural Heritage Management”. The cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea Region is exceptionally versatile and well preserved. However, to date the maritime cultural heritage assets are only barely protected. The BalticRIM project is developing tools to integrate cultural heritage resource management into the Maritime Spatial Planning in the Baltic Sea, across all Baltic Sea region countries, including Russia. BalticRIM contributes to safeguarding the uniqueness of the underwater heritage of the Baltic Sea.
