About us

The point of departure for everything we do at Blue Centre Gotland (BCG) is that water is humankind’s most vital resource. Blue Centre Gotland serves as a regional centre of excellence, gathering and disseminating information about water. Blue Centre Gotland conducts development projects, either itself or in partnership with others, and offers guidance and support for project concepts in the field of water. 

Blue Centre Gotland was established based on the results of a feasibility study. (In Swedish)
