12.30-13.30 Lunch talk: ”Bonde söker bönder” explores the future of farming

  • Adam Arnesson, Organic farmer
  • Elin Röös, Researcher at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Adam Arnesson also known as “Ekobonden” and Elin Röös joined forces in a project that managed to cut the greenhouse gas emissions from Adam’s farm by half. How did they go about this? What can farmers and policymakers in other Nordic or European countries learn from their journey?  They will also discuss how farmers can be incentivized to go about this change and how they see the role of changes in food consumption.

Hosted by Nordic Food Policy Lab, Nordic Council of Ministers

14.30-17.00 Youth Policy Jam: Intergenerational Equity and Climate Justice in the Paris Agreement

The actions and inactions of the present population will jeopardise the rights and wellbeing of generations yet to come. As the generation of now, people under 30 make up roughly half of the world’s population. So lets change that!

So lets discuss the potential of increased youth voices and influence in climate and environment policy.

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.
