Nordic young people at the negotiating table

In 2020, the nations of the world are supposed to come together and agree on global goals to stop the loss of species and ecosystems.

In October, all 196 signatories to the previous set of global goals for biodiversity will meet in Kunming in China to set new ones.

A group of Nordic young people will be at the negotiating table.

Want to make your voice heard on the next crucial global agreement?

The Nordic youth delegation will be there to present demands currently being drafted at in a series of workshops and conferences for young people under the auspices of official Nordic co-operation. 

After meetings in Copenhagen on 9 January, Helsinki and Tórshavn on 24 January, Stockholm on 31 January and Reykjavík on 20 February, at which they will learn more about biodiversity and what is at stake at the upcoming negotiations, young people from all over the Nordic region will converge on UN City Copenhagen on the last weekend in March.

They will spend two days discussing which issues are the most important in the upcoming global negotiations, and distil down the message that Nordic young people want to put to the world.

Play your part!

Make your voice heard! Sign up for the summit in Copenhagen 28-29 March 2020. 

Under certain conditions, travel costs from other Nordic countries will be covered.
