Nordiska Skärgårdssamarbetet is a cross-border cooperation between authorities covering the archipelago regions of Stockholm, Uppsala, Sörmland and Östergötland counties, the counties of Southwest Finland, Uusimaa and Kymenlaakso, and Åland.
The coastal area covers 800 kilometres as the crow flies and around 50,000 people live in the archipelago all year round. We hope this number will increase in the future.
The organisation is mainly concerned with joint cooperation issues and maintaining contacts between coastal and archipelago areas. In addition, NSS organises seminars to give visibility to development needs or opportunities that both authorities and the private sector can pursue. Our focus is to contribute to increased knowledge of the conditions in our archipelagos and coastal areas. We do this in various ways through an active cross-sectoral commitment and by participating in our partners’ working groups.
