Dear BUP friends,
It is a few weeks into the new year, most of us are back at work after a well-deserved break. Many things have already happened from a BUP perspective: we have started celebrating our 30th anniversary! In the previous BUP weekly, we invited you to join the upcoming Space Bridges 2.0, this time, we would like to invite you to contribute to our Book of BUP stories. In this book, we use storytelling to trigger change for a more sustainable future and to tell people about how the BUP can contribute to this. You find more information about this along with much other news below.
With best regards,
The Baltic University Programme’s coordinating secretariat
BUP book of stories
During 2021, the BUP will be putting together a book of BUP stories and are inviting people from all across the programme to contribute with short texts describing anything from important moments in the history of the Programme, through fond memories of BUP events, to funny anecdotes. Stories are powerful – let’s tell some to stop for a little while and look back at what we have achieved and experienced together. It is also a great way of introducing the Programme to a wider audience and to inspire the readers as for our mission: sustainability.

The RNL is published online on our website, as well as distributed on our email list, reaching nearly 3000 recipients in the Baltic Sea Region.
Already now you can send in your abstracts to be published, free of charge, in the upcoming RNL, by clicking the "Submit" button.
