Workshop: Cows are not cars – how to best limit greenhouse gases and air pollution from food production?
Date: Nov 15, 2013 to Nov 16, 2013
Agriculture contributes to emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. It is both reasonable and necessary to decrease these emissions if we are serious about protecting our ecosystems from eutrophication and acidification, breathing cleaner air and mitigating climate change. But you cannot ignore the fact that cows are not cars. End-of-pipe solutions also have their limitations in other sectors, but in food production they are even more evident. We will have to think structurally. We intend to bring together people from different disciplines and backgrounds (researchers, farmers, civil servants, politicians and individuals) who care about this issue for a two-day workshop. The workshop will begin with a couple of short presentations (historical context, present emissions, existing approaches), but plenty of the time will be devoted to creating a common understanding of the challenge in order to identify areas for actions. Our focus will be on what should be done in the Nordic countries, without forgetting the global perspective.

Side event COP19 Reducing emissions and growing the economy - the Nordic way
Date: Nov 15, 2013 to Nov 15, 2013
The Nordic countries are often seen as green in respect of both a good environment and reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions. During the last decades, the Nordic countries have implemented ambitious energy and climate policies. At the same time, economic growth has been relatively strong - even through the current economic crisis. How has this been possible? What policies have been the most effective? Can these policies be implemented in other countries? Within the framework of the Open Climate Network, think tanks from Sweden, Norway and Denmark present a report highlighting some of the more efficient climate policies from the Nordic countries. Nordic Energy Technology Perspectives 2013 will show how the Nordic region can achieve a carbon-neutral energy and transport system in 2050. It is the first ever regional edition of the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) renowned global publication Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP).

Conference on the working environment for young people
Date: Oct 09, 2013 to Oct 09, 2013
An attractive working environment that is inclusive and precludes accidents at work, illness and health-related problems is extremely relevant to ensure that as many people as possible can be part of the labour market. As part of the Swedish Presidency's focus on young people in the workplace, there is particular focus on the working environment for young people. Young people in the Nordic Region face greater risk of accidents at work than older people. Furthermore, the conference will not only focus on accidents but also on the working environment for young people as a whole; what are young people's expectations, for example, for the work conditions in their job, and what challenges do young people face when they enter the labour market? How do risks of accidents at work and poor health vary between young men and women? The Swedish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers, in collaboration with the ILO and the Nordic Institute for Advanced Training in Occupational Health (NIVA) have organised this conference on the working environment for young people. The conference will focus on Nordic experiences but will also draw on relevant international perspectives. NIVA co-hosts the conference which takes place on 9 October 2013 in Stockholm, Rosenbad Conference Centre, Drottninggatan 1. Participation is free, but only on presentation of an invitation. For more information on the conference and on registration and invitation, please contact course co-ordinator Katja Pekkarinen (katja.pekkarinen@ttl.fi) or NIVA's director Mia Latta (mia.latta@ttl.fi).
