Nordic COP26 Hub in Helsinki: Circular Economy – Good for Climate, Good for Business - Circular Economy from strategy to implementation: the future working business models and ecosystems – examples from the Nordics

Our overuse of natural resources drives increased regulatory pressure, investments are shifting towards responsible businesses and new consumption patterns are needed. Sustainability and circularity are the two key factors for our society in the transition towards carbon neutrality, minimizing the negative impact on the environment. Locally, regionally and globally.

We invite to a discussion on the green transition and how to employ circular business models. We seek to further explore how circular economy can be moved from strategy to business, and how one by supporting new ecosystems and piloting new circular economy solutions can contribute to improving circularity in business and organisations to support the green shift. The green transition has already begun within Nordic companies, but how do we ensure a continuous focus on the circular approach?

Nordic Pavilion: Fit for 2055? En route to decarbonising the maritime sector — Turning a cargo ship (Joint event) The maritime industry represents 3 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. Ships last for 20-30 years. Unless shipowners act now their global share will rise. The Nordic region is upping the game.


The maritime sector has an obligation to cut emissions. Once efficiency measures are exhausted and slow steaming has become widespread – new ship types and low or no-carbon fuels has to take over.  Are the maritime sector prepared for this quantum leap? What are the supporting routes to decarbonizing the industry? What are the concrete projects and measures currently being implemented in the Nordic region?

13:15-14:15 — Youth advancing lighter and better living

Nordic COP26 Hub in Helsinki: Youth advancing lighter and better living.

Citizens as consumers have a profound effect on how we shape society. The daily choices we make and how we design our lives are directly linked to how we use resources and impact ecosystems across the globe. Consumption is the main driver of economic growth while increasing consumption is also the main cause of global challenges we face today.

The vision of the ReGeneration 2030 movement is clear – changing how we live is essential to building a sustainable future. Since 2018 ReGeneration 2030 has gathered youth across 18 countries to learn about, voice concerns and mobilize action around SDG 12 – responsible consumption and production. ReGeneration 2030’s network of hundreds of young change-makers are taking individual and collective actions to make sustainable living the norm.

This documentary viewing and panel discussion organized by ReGeneration 2030 highlights just this - the youth’s vision about a more sustainable future addressing how individuals and organizations can advance sustainable living and act together to fast-track change.

Organizer: ReGeneration 2030
