Nordic Talks on Sustainable Cities

Nordic Sustainable Cities, which was one of the six flagship projects under the Nordic prime ministers' initiative Nordic Solutions to Global Challenge officially ended 31 December 2020 with the remaining activities being conducted in 2021. However, this does not mean that the interest in Nordic solutions to sustainable cities is declining.

To learn more about what is going on in the Nordic sustainable cities scene and get a glimpse of what has been achieved through Nordic Sustainable Cities, you can tune in to three Nordic Talks 9 February from 9:00 to 10:35. In addition, the Talks will also dive into our work with Nordic Healthy Cities, which is one of several areas in where Nordic Innovation continues to work with sustainable urban development.

We are excited to see that the results from Nordic Sustainable Cities are getting global attention, and that there is interest in our continued contributions in the field.

– Rasmus Malmborg, Senior Innovation Adviser, Nordic Innovation

The Talks are a collaboration with renowned French business news outlet Les Echos and will be broadcast live on the Les Echos website. The talks will focus on the Nordic way of life and its impact on urbanity, green development and construction. The Talks will be in English with French subtitles.
