Swedish Coast and Sea Center
  • What is SCSC?

    The Swedish Coast and Sea Center (SCSC) is an independent, non-profit, and public benefit association independent of state and local governments and religious, political, or private interests.

  • Our Vision

    Through research projects and outreach, we connect stakeholders and spread the knowledge and understanding that our activity in coastal areas impacts the ocean, its inhabitants, our experience, and the legacy we leave behind for future generations. The main objective of SCSC is to raise awareness among all stakeholders, including the state, municipality, county council, businesses, citizens, and tourists, about the importance of our coastal and sea areas. Every action we take in these areas has a direct impact on what we will experience and what we will leave behind for future generations.

    Our goal is to promote the sustainability of our seas and coasts while preserving their cultural heritage.

  • Why?

    The SCSC aims to function as a natural knowledge hub for Sweden's coasts and seas.

    In addition, the organization actively works towards discovering and preserving the rich diversity of flora and fauna present in and around our coasts and seas. The association also plays an active role in identifying potential threats through dedicated research and studies. With the information and knowledge gathered, the SCSC conducts educational and awareness activities in various fields, such as Archaeology, Biology, and Geology, among others.


Where do new ideas come from? The answer is simple: differences. Creativity comes from unlikely combinations.

Marine Conservation
Maritime Heritage and History
Vättern is the second largest lake by surface area in Sweden, after Vänern, and the sixth largest lake in Europe.

Drinking water is often referred to as our most important resource. However, the documentary "Vättern under the surface" sheds light on how politicians and authorities allow industries to release pollutants into Sweden's largest source of drinking water, Lake Vättern.

The discharge of harmful substances like drug residues, endocrine disruptors, chemicals, and litter have put our drinking water and Lake Vättern at risk.

We only have one planet, and we know that our resources are limited. Despite this, we continue to exploit our nature with great courage. We frequently see examples of how we are damaging our seas, lakes, and waterways. In these uncertain times, where are the brave politicians who will take responsibility for the environment today and in the future? This is an urgent question that needs to be answered.
