The justification of the delegation:

Journalist Folke Rydén from Stockholm, Sweden, is rewarded with 20,000 euros for his depictions of the threats to the Baltic Sea. He has through his documentary films about the different problems in the Baltic Sea had a great impact and influenced decision makers to take action to protect the sea. The themes he has dealt with in his films – over-fishing, eutrophication, chemicalisation and the environmental impact of shipping – are highly topical and relevant. The daily consumer choices by the inhabitants of the Baltic Sea region are of great importance for the state of the Baltic Sea. Without knowledge of the effects, people do not change their attitudes and behavior. Rydén’s films have reached out to a wide audience and they have deepened and nuanced the knowledge of the Baltic Sea issues for the general public.
