People’s Festival 2022: Nordic educational opportunities without borders
Kæmpestrandens debattelt (J5)
Watch the stream from the event here:
The citizens of Denmark and the Nordic countries want the Nordic Council to focus on creating good opportunities for studying in the neighbouring countries. Although these opportunities already existed, COVID-19 showed us that the open and borderless Nordic Region isn’t always so borderless.
How can politicians ensure that young people have the confidence that they can study in the neighbouring countries in the future without the barriers going up again? And what benefits does the opportunity for young people to study in the neighbouring countries offer individual young people and society as a whole?
We will dive into this at this year’s People’s Festival as the Nordic Council celebrates its 70th anniversary as a parliamentary link between the Nordic countries. The Nordic Council will start the debate by shedding light on key issues in Nordic co-operation, including freedom of movement across borders.
