Nordic Green to Scale for Cities and Communities – Release event in Stockholm
Nordic countries offer proven and scalable solutions for cutting emissions globally. What would the impacts be if more cities joined in?

On 27 November SEI will host a dialogue with municipal representatives from Sweden and Finland to learn and share experiences of successful ways in which Nordic municipalities implement green city solutions.

This panel discussion is arranged in celebration of the Nordic Green to Scale for Cities and Communities report which showcases successful green city solutions implemented across five Nordic countries. By making existing scalable climate solutions known we hope this report can strengthen Nordic leadership in climate action and support a better and wider use of existing climate solutions, thereby helping cities implement their climate pledges.

Funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Nordic Green to Scale for Cities and Communities project shows how far emissions can be reduced if already existing solutions were implemented more widely across Nordic countries. It presents an analysis of co-benefits, enablers and barriers, and policy recommendations.

We are delighted to host Saara Vauramo Program Director of Lahti Green Capital 2021 and Mariko Landström Climate Solutions Specialist from Sitra. More speakers TBA.

For more information, please see SEI event page.
