CB is now Central Baltic

Tuesday, 25 April, 2017
The Facebook group CB communication network for projects was opened for anyone to read and for our projects to post to in November 2016. During 2016 and spring 2017, we have had great posts about media visibility, events and other related information.

Lately, we received feedback that the group is hard to find on Faceboook. Thus, to improve findability, the group is now named Central Baltic communication network for projects (instead of 'CB...'). We are also working on making the group further visible on different platforms, such as the Central Baltic webpage.
