Nordic Council of Ministers invites you to a webinar on Nordic Climate Action – The views of the Nordic citizens and the collaboration between the Nordic countries. Join us to learn more about how the Nordic countries will increase their cooperation on climate action.

At the webinar we will launch the report Democracy and climate commit­ment in the Nordic countries: common direction, different solutions.
