14.00-15.00 Managing Forest Landscapes for Climate Change mitigation and adaptation

Healthy ecosystems contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation, and managing forest landscapes is crucial for supporting such ecosystems. This seminar will highlight experiences and practices from Sweden in managing the forest landscape for timber, water security, biodiversity and social values, thereby contributing to a more effective achievement of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement.

15.30-16.30 International emissions trading: Does it work? - STREAMS LIVE

Joint event between Stockholm and Madrid

Ambitious goals for small actors: can the Nordics lead the way towards carbon-neutral societies?The Nordic countries all have ambitious policies aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, probably more ambitious than many other countries globally. However, their total share of global emissions is estimated to a rather shy number: 0,5 per cent.The Nordic countries are also rather ambitious and hopeful in regards to clean technologies and aim to lead the way in this field too. A few questions arise from this: Should the Nordic countries focus on their emissions or “help” other countries lower theirs? Should the Nordics be front-runners hoping to inspire others or put their money where the emissions are easier to reduce? With a Nordic and global perspective, we hope to get the Nordic perspective dissected through the eyes of others, as well as to share our research and learnings so far.With a Nordic and global perspective, we hope to get the Nordic perspective dissected through the eyes of others, as well as to share our research and learnings so far.

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.
