Vision work

The aim of the Vision Phase was to steer and target the activities of maritime actors and maritime spatial planners.

The Vision 2050 for sustainable use of the sea and the related area-specific goals and sector-specific roadmaps were developed through extensive stakeholder work in autumn 2019 and early 2020. A national workshop was held (1 October 2019) and four regional workshops were also organised (Vaasa 6 November 2019, Oulu 7 November 2019, Helsinki 27 November 2019, and Uusikaupunki 28 November 2019). Area-specific development visions for 2030 and sector-specific roadmaps for 2030 were created based on the discussions held at the workshops. Vision work took into account the situational picture of sectors (strengths and weaknesses), the authorities’ policies for the use of marine areas, and observations of scenario work (threats and opportunities).
