A new report from Nordregio provides insights for the discussions

Exchange of best practices and strong social dialogue can help achieve a sustainable Nordic region by 2030. 

A brand new report by Nordregio provides background and insights for the discussions at the conference, covering green transition impacts, just transition strategies, and Nordic best practices.

Nordregio points out that the exchange of best practices among the Nordic countries and strengthening of social dialogue could be an enabler to achieving a just Nordic green transition based on economic growth, social justice and a steady path towards carbon neutrality.

It could also be an important step towards achieving the Nordic vision of being the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030.
