BALLERINA: GLIN's first 'sister' is born...
Stockholm, 29/4 1997
A BALLERINA ENTERS THE BALTIC ENVIRONMENTAL STAGE
Today, the web site BALLERINA (Baltic Sea Region
on-line environmental information resources for Internet
access) was officially launched in Stockholm.
BALLERINA is designed to guide to a broad spectrum of information
resources and ways to communciate on environmental and natural
resource issues and sustainable development issues in the
Baltic Sea Region.
The Great Lakes Information Network - GLIN - is the 'model' for
BALLERINA. The GLIN Director Carol Ratza, who was in the Baltic
Region for a month in 1996 supporting its development, is by many
considered the 'mid-wife' of BALLERINA.
The target audience is the 'environmentally concerned' audience
in the Baltic Sea Region - and elsewhere - ranging from students
in high schools, to the professional environmental management
community and scientists.
BALLERINA is the result of a co-operative effort to
provide comprehensive information on-line.
BALLERINA is financially supported by the European Environment
Agency, the Ministries of Environment in Norway and Sweden, and the
Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
Acting lead parties are UNEP/GRID-Arendal and Stockholm Marine
Research Centre (SMF).
