Baltic Sea - ours to protect

03.07.2014

Baltic Sea is one of the world's most polluted seas. To protect the Baltic Sea, more co-operation and concrete solutions are needed.

Thousand Ideas for the Baltic Sea -course was started in September 2013 at Helsinki Metropolia UAS. It is an innovation project course for students from different faculties and fields of education in Metropolia.

The aim of the course is to develop 1000 ideas for Baltic Sea in five years, in order to improve the environmental state of the sea, to make it safer and more secure, and to create awareness among people and within society about its protection and preservation.

The project is based on Metropolia's commitments to develop and practice actions of sustainable development in higher education; the prime commitment is agreed with Baltic Sea Action Group. Thousand Ideas for Baltic Sea -innovation project is continuing these meaningful missions.

In the project, students learn to work with people from different study fields as a member of an innovation project group, learn to identify and find solutions to problems, further develop the ideas and identify and contact companies and other parties that can further develop or implement the solutions.

During the first year the operations model of the innovation project was developed. Students created several ways for marketing the project, e.g. web-pages, idea bank, poster, leaflet for students as well as video presentation. Students' technical development projects included e.g. the following:

  • robotic sensor application development
  • sea traffic study
  • sea construction study
  • ecological sewage treatment

Tutors during academic year 2013-2014 were Principal Lecturer Antero Putkiranta (Industrial Management) Senior Lecturer Kaj Lindedahl, (Environmental Engineering) Senior Lecturer Jaakko Ruuttunen (Communications) and as coordinator, Senior Lecturer Eeva Hara-Lindström (Media Engineering).
