Food is connected to all of the SGDs and the interest in Nordic know-how on how citizen-driven actions and policies can catalyse the transformation of food systems is growing. Food is also high on the agenda. Several events will be taking place under the overarching theme of “Taste the transition” during the Nordic Climate Action Weeks in Stockholm, which runs in parallel to the UN Climate negotiations. Not only will you get the chance to discuss climate action with experts, ministers, NGOs and the climate-concerned public, you’ll also experience the virtual backdoor into COP25 in Madrid.
Food as climate action – one meal at a time
The following 10 lunch talks will take place over the course of two weeks. Each session will feature chefs, visionaries and experts for a delicious disruption in food. All the talks will take place at Norrsken House between 12.30-13.30 and will be accompanied by a vegan lunch from Pepstop.
It’s free of charge to join the events, but please note that there are a limited number of seats. In order to secure your spot, you must register to get a ticket. Don’t forget to bringing your confirmation along with you to the event. See you soon!
