We would like to ask all participants of the conference from all ages and cultures to bring  photos and notes from BSP actions from the perion 1989-2015. Tegether, just as we learn about the environment around us,  we will create a exhibition of BSP actions as a timeline to the hotel wall. The example picture is under the note. We are looking forward  to see what are your best memories frm the BSP. Print out 1-2 pictures or write small notes from an event. On your arrival we will ask you to stick them on the timeline, next to the right year.

<![CDATA[Volunteer work]]>Sun, 22 Mar 2015 15:28:41 GMThttp://bsp-science-of-changes.weebly.com/sharing-is-caring/volunteer-workOur volunteer team is actually bigger but this Saturday, on 21st on March, 10 of us got together to meet the general coordinator in Pirita TOP SPA Hotel. We put down more details of the conference: our specific roles, times, what kind of cables and wires we need for good presentations and backround music transfer, how to put up the drawing contest exchibition for all of you to see, where to take the group picture, decorations etc. 
Pirita TOP SPA Hotel certainly has an interesting history. We would describe it with the word "unconventional"! We hope that you will see the magic in this place as well even if this may look little bit shabby at first. We felt ourselves very comfortable there. 
The picture was taken outside where the wind and cold weather said "Hello Spring!" to us with a little bit harcher tone than we would have expecter from the last few warmer days. We even got a little snow that day. No worries, when you come here in June, it will be better, hopefully! :)

<![CDATA[January 11.]]>Thu, 05 Feb 2015 18:43:21 GMThttp://bsp-science-of-changes.weebly.com/sharing-is-caring/january-11A GUEST FROM JAPAN

*2015 Jäneda winter BSP camp
On the snowy day of 11th of January, we sat down and talked to Hideki Maruyama upon his leaving for Tartu. Hideki was one of the organizers of the ESD Youth Conference in Japan. It was very interesting to hear about his point of view about The Baltic Sea Project. And since this was our first interview to practice for the BSP conference in June, we decided to add some fun questions, that only we were curious about.

   1.When was your first contact with the BSP?
I was first introduced to BSP through UNESCO at 2007 in Paris.
   2.  What do you think of the BSP community?
Many things- I actually wrote a report on it.
I think the way it started determined a huge part of the projects success.
It was started by local teachers from Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Estonia in 1989.
BSP was not a goverment organized gathering, it was the free will of the teachers, who wanted to change something. I think that is what has made BSP count.
Also it’s good that the organization is open for anyone, so anyone can be a member of  BSP.
    3. What made you join BSP?
The main reason was research because of my profession. I work as a researcher, right now I am comparing Japanese school system to others, like Estonias.
I also joined BSP to learn and to empower myself.
   4. Is Estonia colder than Japan?
Thanks to Japans geographycal location through very different climate zones it has both warm and cold weather, but yes, mostly Estonia is colder.
   5. What are your thoughts on Estonian food so far? Is it very different from Japanese food?
It´s very good. And it´s not too different from Japanese food.
    6. Do you ever miss Japan if you are aboard for long?
Yes, but I’m used to traveling, it is a part of my job and I like it. I´m not missing the food. But I am missing my bathtub.

When we ran out of questions, we had a little chat about our future plans. And then Hideki cheered us up by writing our names in Japanese. We are both hoping to see Hideki again!

<![CDATA[Foreword from the general coordinator of the BSP]]>Mon, 12 Jan 2015 20:31:21 GMThttp://bsp-science-of-changes.weebly.com/sharing-is-caring/foreword"Our life is like a river flow. The river usually flows towards something bigger – an ocean, a lake, a sea, or another river leaving behind a stream bed and in some cases even breathtaking canyons. In other cases the river starts to flow backwards or it collects more precipitation and starts a flood, changing everything on its way. Or the river slows down and starts to meander or it flows into the ground and dry up completely at the end of its course, without reaching another body of water. Whatever the river decides to do, it will still be a part of the hydrological cycle and with the decision some changes will come! “ 

* Gedy Siimenson, the general coordinator of the Baltic Sea Project, 2015 *
