From Nordic to Global Stocktakes and Visions
The world is taking stock of climate action and so are the Nordic countries. The project “Nordic Stocktake and Visions - Pathways to Climate Neutrality” investigates how far the Nordic region has come on the path towards climate neutrality and the gaps still remaining. It also spurs dialogue on visions for the future and how to speed up solutions to bridge existing gaps. Starting from preliminary findings from the Nordic Stocktake and Visions project, this event brings together high-level government and business leaders from sectors in transitions in the Nordics to discuss visions, challenges and solutions on the path to climate neutrality.
