A successful South Baltic Edutainment Day 2013
17 South Baltic projects inspire more than 400 school students from Denmark, Lithuania and Poland with the idea of cross-border co-operation.

The South Baltic Edutainment Day 2013, which took place  on 18th September 2013 in Gdansk, was the pivotal contribution of the South Baltic Programme to a series of events all over Europe to celebrate the European co-operation. 17 South Baltic projects came up with compelling ideas how to inspire young people to pursue the virtues of maritime cross-border co-operation. Hundreds of school students aged between 12 and 19 immersed themselves into the world of cross-border maritime mobility and affinity, education and culture, innovation and sustainability, prosperity and unity.


The event was designed to resemble a school day seeking the integration with English class curricula.

In keeping with the tagline “Catch the South Baltic winds in your sails, explore, discover, get inspired!”, the South Baltic projects have designed a myriad of attractions including artistic installations, performances, augmented reality, virtual tours, eLearning, eGuides, interactive games, demonstrations, screenings, hands-on experiments, lectures and tangible models.

Along with a lecture, a 3 metres long and 2 metres wide model of an offshore wind energy farm produced within the South Baltic project SB OFF.E.R. has demonstrated the wind energy supply to a housing estate. A number of other South Baltic projects have made efforts to spark the sustainability mindset among youngsters using attractions such as  a photo gallery depicting various renewable energy sources authored by school students (project RES-Chains), a bicycle folding-unfolding contest (project abc.multimodal), electric bicycle trial rides (project ELMOS), direct dialogue with urban planners on sustainable mobility (project BAYinTRAP).

The event embraced the opportunity to highlight the maritime nature of the South Baltic Programme with contributions such as “What’s it like to be a sailor?” (project M.A.S.T.), virtual panorama museum tours and eGuide trials (project BalticMuseums 2.0 Plus), “Make a career in the maritime sector – quiz with awards” (project Generation BALT), experiments on Baltic sea hydrography (project South Baltic WebLab), computer simulation of dredged materials disposal (project ECODUMP).

Broadening young people’s minds on a cross-border scale is where the projects South Baltic Professionals and the South Baltic Training Programme have taken the floor. The project COHAB has arranged what has become a literal cross-border mobility session by means of an innovative interaction technology which allowed the remote navigation of a camera placed in the University College Zealand controlled by the youngsters in Gdansk.

The project Southern Baltic TechnOlympics has conducted two preliminary TechnOlympics rounds, and awarded youngsters with a trip to Germany to take part in Technolympics  Schwerin 2013.

In an appealing artistic way, two other South Baltic projects sought to share their passion for history (CRAFTLAND music performances and archery shooting games) and future (ARTLINE augmented reality storytelling).

The event was designed to coincide with the cross-border football tournament of the project Respect Balticum which invited more than 160 guests from Denmark, Lithuania and the Polish region of West Pomerania to explore the South Baltic world.

The South Baltic Edutainment Day 2013 was conducted by the Joint Technical Secretariat of the South Baltic Programme in close co-operation with project beneficiaries, the Gdansk Science and Technology Park and EduPark Gdansk.
