The climate crisis is here and we need to act now. We need to get to work right away if we are to have more than a standing chance of reaching the long-term goal of a well bellow 2°C temperature rise, as set out in the Paris Agreement.
Nordic Talks offers fresh perspectives on ways to promote a more sustainable and socially just future. During COP26, Nordic Talks will host eight events covering everything from climate action in the Arctic to green and livable cities in Africa.
Taking part will be high-level speakers, top scientists, youth delegates and other leading voices on climate change. All of the events will look at what it will take to make the world act on the climate crisis. Watch the livestreams and join in the conversation!

2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference
UNFCCC’s 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) is being held in Glasgow, 31 October–12 November. The annual gathering of member states is the main intergovernmental forum to discuss climate change, and this year’s event is particularly important. It will be the first time since the Paris Agreement was ratified that the parties have been asked to re-evaluate their climate work over the last five years and hopefully commit to even higher ambitions.
About Nordic Talks
Nordic Talks is an initiative by the Nordic Council and Council of Ministers that provides a space for contemplation and to share inspiration on how to act on sustainability issues in our everyday lives. All of the Nordic Talks are dedicated to addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals and all of them provide specific ideas on how we, as ordinary citizens, make a difference – right here and now. The mission is to inspire people to act – everyone from gamers and tech nerds to foodies and policymakers – which is why each talk ends with a set of clear-cut action points. We need tangible things to do because we need to make climate actions comprehensible. For everyone.
