The green transition – consequences for Nordic jobs and skills?


01:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Keynote 1: Surviving the pandemic: Which sectors will thrive and who will suffer?

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the world into a major recession and it has been questioned whether we can afford to invest in the green transition. The question could also be reversed: maybe mainly green businesses will survive? But what financial structures are required to further the green transition? We take a look into the crystal ball and discuss competitiveness in a post-corona world.

Keynote 2: Skills for sustainable development: A Nordic approach to the green future

To reach the goals in the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030 will require new skills and a different approach to growth than we know from the fossil-based era we are leaving behind. What does that mean for the future job market, what are the implications for the education system and life-long learning? And how can the Nordic countries contribute to developing skills for sustainable development?
