Keynote 1: Giants or Lilliputians: Are the Nordics (still) climate front runners?

2020 was supposed to be the year of climate ambition, but where are we now after COP26 has been postponed? And what have the Nordic countries done to live up to the goals in the Paris Agreement and reach carbon neutrality? In the lead up to the UN Climate negotiations at COP26 in 2021 and the follow up to the corona crisis, what difference can the Nordics make in the global effort to build back better?

Keynote 2: How to punch above your weight-pushing the agenda

Let´s make an experiment: What would happen if we put the Nordic countries at the service of the world for a few months? Be our guest, world - use all our knowledge, experience, values and ability to co-operate to reach the sustainability goals! Do the Nordic countries still hold a position in the eyes of the world? If so, what are our areas of strength? Can we address the expectations, even after the Corona crisis? In which areas should the Nordic countries have ambitions to take the lead? Join a debate between five young Nordic globalists - five years after the Nordic prime ministers initiativ "Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges".
