A Note from the Editors: Our New Co-operation with the European Student Think Tank

Crossing the Baltic is very happy to announce its new co-operation with the European Student Think Tank (EST). Founded in 2010 EST has now become an extremely successful enterprise. The European Student Think Tank advocates a greater participation and involvement of students and young Europeans in European politics. Moreover, EST functions as a platform where European students can comment and react on European news, discuss European affairs with experts in the field, and where students can present their own policy ideas.

For Crossing the Baltic this new co-operation offers a great opportunity. We have long supported the idea that the Baltic Sea Region lies in fact at the heart of Europe and that this region, with its rich past, may form an important part of the European future. Far too long Europe has clung to the use of mental geographies that reminisce too many associations with the Cold War era. Crossing the Baltic strongly believes that strengthening the importance of a Baltic Europe may help to overcome old divisions.

We are delighted that with our new partner we have now been given a chance to further promote the importance of the Baltic Sea region for Europe and beyond.
