High-Level Event on Attractive Climate Solutions

How can the world scale up climate action in the current political landscape? How far can we go simply using existing low-carbon solutions? What role can Europe and Nordic countries play?

These questions will be addressed at a high-level event organised by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, the Norwegian Mission to the EU and the Nordic Council of Ministers. Our distinguished speakers will share their insights and invite you to take part in the discussion. The event will also present the results of the Nordic Green to Scale study for the first time in Brussels.

The event will take place on Friday 3 March at 09:00–10:30 in the Norway House, Rue Archimède 17, Brussels. A light breakfast is served starting at 08:30.
