Climate change is a fact and the need to a green transition is here – now. The Nordic co-operation has a strong focus on building and developing environmentally sustainable solutions within every field.

What do we know about the effects of climate change on the labour market? How do we control and plan for the transformation of work regarding transitioning to a greener work force and labour market? What solutions and ideas are there to create a sustainable future where growth and safety meet?

The Finnish Presidency in the Nordic Council of Ministers is organising a Conference on the Future of Work in Climate Change – Challenges and Opportunities on the 30th of November 2021 in Helsinki, Finland.

We will be hearing from international experts and researchers within the field. The seminar will be held in English and can also be attended online.


Finlands presidency and Nordic co-operation

Finland assumed its one-year Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers on 1 January 2021. The main task of the Finnish Presidency will be to advance Our Vision 2030, adopted by the Nordic Prime Ministers, according to which the Nordic region will be the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030. The Vision’s focal points are a green Nordic region, a competitive Nordic region and a socially sustainable Nordic region. In the course of 2021, Finland will together with the Secretariat of the Nordic Council of Ministers organize many Nordic ministerial meetings and several other meetings at senior official level. Finland’s Presidency coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Nordic co-operation is one of the world´s most extensive forms of regional collaboration, involving Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.

Nordic co-operation seeks to safe-guard Nordic and regional interests and principals in the global community. Shared Nordic values help the region solidify its position as one of the world’s most innovative and competitive region
