Two weeks have passed. How did the UN Climate Negotiations in Madrid go? What are the key outtakes?
This Friday from 10.45 to 11.15 Nordic ministers for climate and environment will sum up and answer questions about this years’ climate negotiations.
The summary is part of the Nordic Climate Action Weeks at Norrsken House in Stockholm where the Nordic Cooperation has created a digital backdoor to the UN Climate Conference – COP25 – in Madrid.
Stockholm, Madrid or online
Lövin, Elvestuen and Mikkonene will visit the Nordic pavilion in Madrid while the audience at Norrsken House in Stockholm can follow the conversation live and ask questions to the ministers.
- You can visit our pavilion in Madrid, come to Norrsken House in Stockholm or watch online. Either way you’ll be able to join an event where we will open up for questions to the ministers from the audience both in Madrid and Stockholm, says Mary Gestrin, Head of communication at the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Nordic Climate Action Weeks is a brand new concept where the Nordic Cooperation offers a digital backstage pass for the general public to COP25 in Madrid from 2 to 13 December.
- We believed there was a potential for reducing the number of flights and our carbon footprint when we participate in global events. Still, the most important part of this has been to provide people who normally don’t have the ability to attend the negotiations, an access to what’s really going when the world leaders come together to agree on the way forward, says Gestrin.
A crucial element of the project has been to involve and invite Nordic youth to take part in the discussions, ask questions, address demands and messages to the politicians and get insights from the ongoing negotiations.
- It’s been amazing to work together with such committed, creative and smart young people both in the planning and during these two packed weeks. We are so grateful that so many climate engaged young Nordic citizens have taken part in our effort to open up the climate negotiations, Gestrin says.
