The Finnish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers 2021 stressed the importance of Nordic co-operation in its programme for the year, calling it absolutely essential. A survey conducted in January by the Nordic Association in Sweden shows that the expectations placed on Nordic co-operation have increased considerably during the pandemic. 

The Finnish programme also calls for a bio-based and circular economy.  The event will take an in-depth look at Nordic co-operation from the perspective of the need to work together in times of crisis and where we go from here. It will also address the demand for joint solutions for a sustainable Nordic Region, particularly for a circular economy.
