The Nordic Council of Ministers has drawn up new programmes for co-operation to help achieve its vision by 2030 and is now inviting the public to comment on them. The programmes replace the current four-year action plans, which run out at the end of 2024. The consultation is open from 26 March until 26 April.

The programmes for co-operation describe the policy priorities and objectives of each council of ministers for the coming six-year period and will guide their work to achieve 'Our Vision 2030'. All 14 councils of ministers have approved draft programmes. 

Their focus has been on involving civil society, business and other relevant stakeholders. The Nordic Council, the forum for Nordic inter-parliamentary co-operation, and the civil society network Nordic Civ were both closely involved in the process. Their written input has made a valuable contribution and has been taken into account in the final drafts. 

Anybody interested in the Nordic Region can now read them and make their views known by filling out and submitting a form on the Nordic co-operation website.

About 'Our Vision 2030’

The Nordic Region has a vision of being the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030. All work done by the Nordic Council of Ministers must serve this purpose. The work to achieve the vision pursues three strategic priorities:

  • A green Nordic Region – together, we will promote a green transition of our societies and work for carbon neutrality and a sustainable, circular and bio-based economy.
  • A competitive Region – together, we will promote green growth in the Nordic Region based on knowledge, innovation, mobility and digital integration.
  • A socially sustainable Nordic Region – together, we will promote an inclusive, equal and interconnected region with shared values and strengthened cultural exchange and welfare.
