Nordic Day 2023: The Nordic Region for young people - today and tomorrow

23.03.23 | Event
Together with high school students, Nordic co-operation will take a look at the Nordic Region of today and tomorrow.  We take the pulse of Nordic co-operation, and especially the elements that are relevant to young people. On Nordic Day, we will therefore discuss the climate, loneliness, security, peace, gender equality, and democracy. In connection with this, more than 50 students have prepared putting into words their own dreams for the future and Our Vision 2030. Together, we will discuss where the Nordics stand today, where we’re headed, and how we will become the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030.
