History

Zennström Philanthropies initiated Race For The Baltic in 2013 as a public awareness campaign. The campaign brought together over 100 organisations to partner on a 3,700 km cycle ride around the Baltic Sea. The campaign collected 27,000 signatures, which were presented to the Ministers of Environment of the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea in the lead up to the HELCOM Ministerial meeting in October 2013. Today, Race For The Baltic Foundation refers to the work that Zennström Philanthropies engages in regarding the Baltic Sea.
