Our debates at the People’s Festival 2023:
The Nordic energy transition requires a massive expansion of offshore wind, which has led to a race for space in the sea.
Action must be taken about the loss of biodiversity. The whole of society needs to be involved if we are reverse the trend and re-establish biodiversity. But how?
The debate will streamed live on norden.org.
The Nordic Region is a leading region in Europe for innovation and startups. How can we encourage private capital to support circular innovation in the Region?
In recent decades, there has been a tendency for people to know less and less about the languages of their Nordic neighbours. Why is that? Why are language and culture so important?
To change the health focus from treatment to prevention will require a far higher degree of citizen involvement and willingness to share personal data. Digital health apps can be a big part of the solution.
Is there such a thing as a Nordic identity and what new opportunities are there for working together? Could we create a shared public service platform? Nordic co-operation on defence?
The lack of skilled labour is a challenge in Denmark and the rest of the Nordic Region. The Danish dropout rate from vocational training is 40%, almost three times as large as the corresponding rate from academic education. We want to kick-start a debate with young people about the vocational training of the future.
The debate will be streamed live on norden.org.
Can we still achieve our climate goals and ensure a fair, green transition at a time of high energy prices and an uncertain geopolitical situation?
Altinget and the Nordic Council of Ministers have combined to articulate Nordic co-operation and what the future holds for it.
This debate will be live streamed on norden.org.
This panel will dive into the topics of Indigenous rights, the green transition and biodiversity - and best practices to harmonize these.
The Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Council are hosting a conversation about Nordic identity and answering questions about Nordic co-operation.
Discover the latest in Nordic nature-based solutions that will help keep climate change below 1.5 degrees. You can also join the discussion about how much – or little – progress we have made in the area and what is needed to scale up work on nature-based solutions in the Nordic Region.
Making clothes and other textiles last longer is a key element in making the textile industry sustainable. Bring your favourite holey jersey or make personalised “patches”" to take home.
More and more young people feel unhappy and excluded. The Nordic Council of Ministers is bringing together young people, experts, civil society and decision-makers at all five Nordic democracy festivals to address a key challenge faced by all of the Nordic countries: How to get more young people involved?
What is the relationship like between the Ukrainian and Russian diasporas more than a year after the full-scale Russian invasion and the war in Ukraine? Is it possible for them to enter into a dialogue – perhaps even to join forces to change the situation?
