Rock the Baltic Sea challenges music festival organizers, bands and music lovers to save the Baltic Sea through practical actions.

It is initiated to increase awareness about the challenges the Baltic Sea has faced for many years and still struggle to tackle. Rock the Baltic Sea is a social media campaign connecting all music lovers around the Baltic Sea to act together for our common brackish water sea.

Rock the Baltic Sea invites rock festivals to join the campaign by setting themselves a goal to be more Baltic Sea friendly. The goal could be for example to minimize the amount of plastic waste and prevent it from entering the Baltic Sea. Fishbait Rock festival from Åland has already committed to the challenge. Artists and bands will join the campaign by giving a Baltic Sea promise. Festival visitors participate the campaign by following it and taking part into the activities in a social media.
