Fundur fólksins, the democracy festival in Iceland, is held in and around Nordens Hus in Reykjavik.
On Friday 16 September, the focus will be on children and young people, with Saturday set aside for anyone who is interested. Both days will feature events that focus specifically on Nordic co-operation.
All times are local time (GMT).
The climate crisis poses both threats and new possibilities for agriculture. How do we adapt cultivation to a warming climate, and are there opportunities to expand production and introduce new types of crops in high latitudes?
Would collective Nordic climate policies make the goal of a sustainable Nordic region more attainable? And how do we ensure that the perspectives of children and youth, who will bear the brunt of climate change, are reflected in policymaking?
How can we create urban spaces that work with nature instead of against it? The seminar provides two talks on blue-green solutions in urban settings, followed by a panel discussions with representatives from Reykjavík municipality, the health sector, and a self-initiated local NGO.
The future of construction must be sustainable – but how will we build in the future? With what types of materials, and what is the role of architecture in the change towards sustainable construction of the future?
