As Denmark has now taken over the presidency of the Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation (TWSC) from Germany, the new Representative of the Danish Delegation to the Wadden Sea Board (WSB), Martin Petersen, joined the new WSB Chair, Anne-Marie Rasmussen, on visit to the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat in January 2023. The purpose of the visit was to meet all members of the CWSS team in person and to get informed about the full range of activities and tasks handled by CWSS.
After a comprehensive and much acknowledged overview given by the CWSS staff members, the Danish delegates updated the team on the current situation in Denmark with particular regard to the draft Wilhelmshaven Declaration, which remains outstanding. In the next morning the visitors and CWSS Executive Secretary used the opportunity to discuss ongoing and emerging issues of concern. The effort by the new Chair and Representative to take the time for the journey to Wilhelmshaven was much appreciated!
