17.00-18.30 Nordic Talks: Is climate change changing parenthood - STREAMS LIVE

Joint event between Stockholm and Madrid 📺

Why don’t grownups care about climate change?” That is a question many parents most likely will be answering their children in the 2020’s, unless we as adults, role models and political leaders start to act as though we mean business when it comes to saving our planet and securing a safe future for our children. With Greta Thunberg as their trailblazer, children are starting to educate their parents and demand responsibility. Are roles changing while the poles are melting? Is climate change changing parenthood?

Host: Sara Bro (DK)

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.
