The Future of The
Three Seas

The Three Seas Initiative serves to strengthen ties in the wider Central European region (located between the Baltic, Adriatic and Black Seas), creating a durable foundation for economic development in spheres of energy, transport and digitization.

The State of Poland
Foundation

Properly motivated people are the greatest asset of any project. That is why the State of Poland Foundation has prepared a report that discusses the historical and contemporary cultural context in which the nations of the Three Seas Initiative have developed, while also presenting a communication strategy that will effectively build a positive image of the Three Seas Initiative within the region, which is crucial to the project's success.

Conference 2022

This year's 2nd edition of the conference will be dedicated to the importance of freedom, with the full title of the conference this year being inspired by a quote from Pope John Paul II

“Freedom is not given once and for all, it must be won time and time again with the help of truth.”

This year we will discuss the opportunities and threats to independence, economic autonomy, and freedom of expression in Central Europe’s new geopolitical situation. The conference is organized under the patronage of Poland’s State Development Bank and the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

TEDx topic: "The Distance of Freedom" "Western Europe enjoys a geographical and historical distance from the upheavals of Eastern Europe. As such it was easier for its leaders to ignore the rising dangers of a revanchist Russia. Even now the limitations of the EU ideal of 'ever closer union' have been exposed. The arguement must be made and won that unless all of Europe is free and whole, Europe is not free."
