This side event will discuss the impact of the circular economy to the existing market econonmy in its present form. After the introduction of the concept of circular economy only few years ago the concept has gained a lot of attention and momentum. However, sometimes is seems to be dealt with as a quick fix that just needs to be implemented. But CE is not an easy fix. I.e. internalization of externalities in terms of environmental consequences is still not the new norm and the existing market economy in its present form simply cannot implement circular economy alone. Political leadership and policy instrument is needed.
Up to one million plant and animal species are at risk of extinction – and climate change is one of the threats to biodiversity. And yet – the climate negotiations in Madrid 2–13 December fails to pay sufficient attention to biodiversity.
That’s why we are inviting nature- and climate activists to the first Nordic Youth Workshop on Nature AND Climate. At the end of the workshop, we’ll convey the messages from Nordic young people to the political leaders at COP25 in Madrid.
Joint event between Stockholm and Madrid
The briefing will summarize discussion from the event in Madrid on climate and biodiversity and reflect upon the outcome from the workshop on climate and biodiversity and youth in Stockholm.
Moderator: Kajsa Li Paludan, Climate Policy Advicor
The responsibility for action on climate change can’t be left to either civil society, business or the political system alone. We need to build bridges between them. This event will focus on how parliamentarians can take the lead and facilitate partnerships.

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.
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:
