Save the Date 28 Nov 2019: Northern Dimension Future Forum "Fresh and sustainable experiments of the Global North"

This Open Forum is a part of the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2019.
Panelists discussing during the Northern Dimension Future Forum in St Petersburg in 2018

The Open Forum panels present technology- and human-centered sustainable solutions to societal challenges in the fields of health, transport, environment and culture, which are Northern Dimension thematic partnerships. Voice is given to representatives of civil society, university sector, business and government. The exhibition area presents fresh solutions to societal challenges – particularly those generated by students and youth.

The Forum is free of charge and open to everyone. The programme and registration will be soon available on the website

The event is organized by the Northern Dimension Institute together with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and financed by DG NEAR/European Commission.

The Open Forum serves as the people-to-people pre-event to the “Clean and Global North - High-Level Event on Regional Cooperation in the North” event, organized by the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, together with the European External Action Service and the European Commission on 28-29 Nov in Finlandia Hall, Helsinki acknowledging the 20-year anniversary of the Northern Dimension.
