Our most active and creative students take part in different projects. There are regional projevts that support Blue school`s economy: WatMan- Nutrient pollution is a major water quality problem in the Baltic Sea and complete data on the waterborne nutrient inputs via rivers is particularly needed to address this problem. The Narva river forms the border between Estonia and Russia and in terms of its volume is the second largest river discharging into the Gulf of Finland. However, up to now Estonia and Russia use significantly different measured data and calculation methods for estimation of total nutrient load transported by the Narva river to the sea.

To overcome this mismatch the NarvaWatMan project was created.The objective of the project is to develop a common calculation methodology for the Narva River water quality and quantity and to make recommendations for more effective measures to reduce pollution load from both countries. The second one is The Baltic Sea Project (BSP) is an international school network launched by the Finnish National Commission for UNESCO in 1989 to raise students 'awareness of environmental issues in the Baltic Sea region and to develop students' skills in studying environmental change.
