  The Baltic Sea Heritage Co-operation
was set up following the Lübeck Declaration in 1997.
Its mandate was to develop an action plan to safeguard and develop the common heritage of the Baltic Sea States through four working groups.
One of these, the Working Group for Coastal Culture and Maritime Heritage,
is responsible for “Baltic Lights” – an exhibition of twelve posters to raise awareness and promote the preservation of lighthouses under threat in the Baltic area.
