In consideration of the current disastrous occurrences in Japan, the 2011 B7 President, Mr. Uwe Ahlers, sent them letters of condolences to express the heartfelt sympathy and sorrow from all B7 Islands for all the victims and the great number of injured and missing people after the tsunami.

B7 invites to Fishery Conference in Sassnitz, Rügen

The current situation of the traditional coastal fishery in the Baltic Sea Region is almost equally difficult on all B7 IslanFotolia_14599652_XSds. Due to that reason B7 invites the relevant policymakers to Rügen for the B7 Fisheries Conference and a common exchange of information and experiences on this topic. Rügen as the presidential B7 Island would like to lobby for the maintaining of traditional coastal fishery in the Baltic Sea Area and act on behalf of the local fishermen.

B7 Conference "Maintaining the traditional Coastal Fishery with regard to the current EU Fisheries Policy"
Town Hall of Sassnitz, Rügen
24th May 2011, 9:00 - 15:00


B7 Cooking Course - That´s how it tastes on the Baltic Sea Islands

k-P1010622What are the preferred dishes of people living on the swedish island Gotland? And what do the residents of the estonian islands Hiiumaa and Saaremaa like to eat for dinner? To get answers to these questions 17 amateur chefs from Rügen took part into a special B7 cooking course on the 2nd of March at the Grone Schoole in Bergen. They prepared a colourful buffet with 18 different dishes typical on the islands and asked the invited experts about the secrets of the island´s cuisine. Of course all the delicious dishes were tasted, together with the invited partners.
