Baltic Sea Farmer of the Year Award 2015
Posted on 02 November 2015
Many farmers are prepared to go the extra mile in order to help save the Baltic Sea. The winners of the WWF Baltic Sea Farmer of the Year Award 2015 have all taken measures on their own initiative to reduce nutrient runoff to the Baltic Sea.
The WWF Baltic Sea Farmer of the Year Award competition was launched in 2009 by WWF in cooperation with farmers’ organisations from around the Baltic Sea. It’s intended to highlight best practices in “Baltic-friendly” farming and to recognise and promote farmers who are taking innovative measures to reduce nutrient runoff from their farms.
"Farmers are often blamed for the problems we face today with the Baltic Sea," says Ottilia Thoreson, Manager of WWF Baltic Ecoregion Programme. "With this award we can truly showcase and raise awareness about all the good initiatives being practiced in the region, to achieve more environmentally friendly farming. Farmers are part of the solution and are the best in teaching each other about new practices to change the future for the Baltic Sea.”
