"The Nordic Green Economy"- EVENT POSTPONED
|Venue:||FIU - MMC | CBC 233|
Panel on "The Nordic Green Economy: what can we learn from the Nordic Model?"
with the Swedish & Norwegian ambassadors, the Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy of Finland, and the Secretary General of the Nordic Council of Ministers
An international consensus about the need of a new sustainable economic model, where a good economy and a healthy environment are mutually beneficial, has been reached by now. A series of intergovernmental working groups and state-led initiatives already advance sustainable economies. Scandinavia is a vanguard in this respect, and has led the international community in adopting Green Economy policies. This panel, made up of Nordic governmental representatives as well as environmental experts, presents some of the ideas behind the Green Economy model, and will discuss in how far these ideas can be implemented elsewhere, including in the U.S.
This panel is in presented at the occasion of the release of the jointly-produced volume 'The Nordic Model' (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2017).
