Race For The Baltic was granted observer status to HELCOM during the 2018 Ministerial Meeting on the 6 March 2018.

As an international non-governmental organisation, Race For The Baltic has now joined an extensive network of HELCOM observers contributing actively to the protection of the Baltic Sea.

Becoming an observer is a landmark occasion for the Foundation, allowing Race For The Baltic to follow HELCOM conversations more closely and support the vital work of HELCOM to reach Baltic Sea Action Plan goals.
