The Baltic University Programme
The Baltic University Programme (BUP) is a network of about 225 universities and other institutes of higher learning throughout the Baltic Sea region. The network is coordinated by the Baltic University Programme Secretariat a part of Uppsala Centre for Sustainable Development (CSD Uppsala) at Uppsala University, Sweden.
The Programme focuses on questions of sustainable development, environmental protection, and democracy in the Baltic Sea region. The aim is to support the key role that universities play in a democratic, peaceful and sustainable development. This is achieved by developing university courses, and by participation in projects in cooperation with authorities, municipalities and others.
The Baltic University Programme invites your university to take part in the network. It has shown that member universities enhance their ranking and that a membership also may enhance the possibilities to get funding. Questions on how to join are answered by your nearest BUP Center or the Secretariat.
For the BUP courses a wealth of teaching materials has been produced. The materials include textbooks, booklets and films. Most of this material is free to download in the pdf-format. Some printed materials could be bought through the BUP. Please see the BUP secretariat web site's section BUP Online Publications for more information and downloads.
