10:00 - 11:30: Circular Economy – Good for Climate, Good for Business 

Organizer: Nordic Innovation / Others involved: Accenture

We invite to a discussion on the green transition and how to employ circular business models. We seek to further explore how circular economy can be moved from strategy to business, and how one by supporting new ecosystems and piloting new circular economy solutions can contribute to improving circularity in business and organisations to support the green shift. The green transition has already begun within Nordic companies, but how do we ensure a continuous focus on the circular approach?

11.45 - 12.45: Trade unions, climate change and climate action!

Organizers: Council of Nordic Trade Unions (NFS) and Global utmaning / Others involved: The Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) and German Trade Union Confederation (DGB) 

This seminar will demonstrate and provide with some samples on how climate action is connected to collective bargaining and traditional trade union work and why this is a key element of Just Transition.

Artists all over the world have put the climate crisis on the agenda. However, the role of culture in the climate crisis goes beyond the individual artist.

The Nordic Region provides both visions and examples.
