15.00-16.00 Sustainable finance - Nordic input and solution - STREAMS LIVE

Joint event between Stockholm and Madrid

What is the best way for the Nordics to reduce global emissions? What are the implications for sustainable finance?  The Nordic countries perform well in global sustainability rankings. The Nordic experience shows that it is possible to deal with environmental problems, while at the same time building competitiveness.  Nordic financial institutions have supported this progress by adopting the principles of Green financing at a very early stage. What are the next steps?

16.00-17.00 Private Sector Engagement for Clean and affordable off Grid Energy Solutions in Africa - STREAMS LIVE

Joint event in Stockholm and Madrid

Did you know that almost one billion people worldwide still lack access to electricity? These people have difficulty even getting light to cook or read during dark hours. Not to mention charging their phones. In today’s world, access to electricity is one of the main preconditions of prosperity growth.
A new award-winning programme, Beyond the Grid Fund, has proven how a vision of scale with local solutions and an openness for exploring new ways of collaborating can result in innovation, break business- as-usual trends and bring us closer to realizing the sustainable development goals.
Experts from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) and the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO) will together with private sector investors share their experience and look into how we can get further involved in global climate action, in a financially and socially viable way.

    About Nordic Climate Action Weeks

    Are you concerned about climate change and want to see some action? Let’s talk! From 2nd to 13th of December the Nordic Co-operation invite you to watch and participate in a wide range of climate events in relation to the UN climate negotiations – the COP25. Our mission is to create a backdoor into the COP25 and open it up for our Nordic citizens.

    The new vision for the Nordic Cooperation states that we shall become the most sustainable region in the world by 2030. This is quite ambitious, but if we can’t make it, who else?

    We have the resources, the knowledge, we have the political platforms and we have climate concerned citizens who demand changes. Let’s talk about how we can get there.

    Participate online or at Norrsken House in Stockholm – A backdoor to COP25

    You don’t have to travel to Madrid to take part in and get wiser about what’s going on when the world leaders meet to solve the climate crisis.

    You can come to Stockholm instead. We’ve invited experts, ministers, NGOs and last, but not least the climate concerned general public to Norrsken House in Stockholm city center. We’re also creating a virtual backdoor into the COP25 in Madrid. Experts and guests in Madrid will join us live in order to share and discuss their expertise and insights into the climate negotiations.

    The ambition is to open up the UN Climate negotiations to the general public and to:

    • discuss the biggest and most demanding Nordic and global climate challenges.
    • highlight Nordic Solutions to global challenges and their benefits for other countries.  
    • raise new questions and seek answers in order to catalyze climate friendly actions.

    Partners

    Our partner for the arrangements at Norrsken House is Global Utmaning – an independent think-tank that promotes sustainable development within social, economic and environmental dimensions.

    Our social network partner is We Don't Have Time – the worlds biggest social media network for climate action. Download their app to start act for the climate.
