The BSSSC board came together for the second time under the chairmanship of Schleswig-Holstein on May 28/29 2024 in Cēsis in Latvia.

The first day was spent at the Space Education Centre in Cēsis. After some welcoming words the Mayor, Jānis Rozenbergs, took everybody on a virtual tour around the municipality of Cēsis.  Afterwards the board engaged in a lively discussion about „The culture of democracy: strengthening social resilience of communities“. This was exemplified by a presentation of the city of Rūjiena that recently obtained the title as „Baltic Sea Cultural Pearl“ and is now working on a concrete and very ambitious Action Plan in order to increase social resilience through cultural activities. BSSSC chairman and Minister for European Affairs of Schleswig-Holstein also spoke to the board and underlined the importance of cooperation among the Baltic Sea States Sub-Regions to share the experiences in resilience-building on a transnational level. 

On the second day the BSSSC board came together at Cēsis‘ Concert Hall to discuss relevant topics for the Baltic Sea States Sub-Regions, among others the future of the European cohesion policy and the input of BSSSC to the revision of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
