Global climate change has created great pressure on the nature and the people living in the Arctic. The average temperature in the Arctic rises, glaciers and the sea ice are melting and the availability of natural resources is increasing. This creates concerns for the nature, the communities and the people living in the Arctic, but also new opportunities are arising.
Megatrends are trends deemed so powerful that they have the potential to transform society across social categories and at all levels, from individuals and local-level players to global structures, and eventually to change our ways of living and thinking!
A main objective of this seminar is to address the most substantial Megatrends, namely: Demographic challenges; Human capital and the knowledge economy; and Green growth. The aim is to gather central actors in order to generate ideas for new policy initiatives and projects on a Nordic level.
The seminar is arranged by Nordregio and the Nordic Council of Ministers.
If you have questions or wish to get further information, please contact Klaus Georg Hansen.
Participation is free of charge. The number of participants at the seminar is limited.
