The Role of Financial Institutions in Catalyzing Collaborations in Shared Waters: The Case of The Baltic Sea Project

Water Dialogues Seminar

Presentation by Tove Erikslund, Chief Administrative Officer, Ålandsbanken.

The Baltic Sea Project is grounded on the conviction that all actors in the region must tackle the major environmental challenges together. The Project is open to all actors from public and private sector who would actively contribute toward a healthy Baltic Sea. It gathers and works with those actors in various forms to improve the conditions of the Baltic Sea.

Tove Erikslund is the Chief Administrative Officer and member of the board at Ålandsbanken. She worked at the bank for many years with a variety of issues through different positions, such as business developer, Human Resources Director and sustainability. Together with her colleagues, she took the initiative to develop the Baltic Sea project, which includes the Baltic Sea card and Åland index.
