The concept of ’Nordic Talks’ is based on inviting experts to share insights and ideas for solutions to some of the challenges facing the world. The conversations will be based on the UN SDGs and cover everything from climate change to demographic, political and social changes and challenges. The talks revolve around curiosity, and the ambition behind the new concept is to inspire people all over the world to take action to ensure a sustainable future for all.
The first three episodes of the podcast series Nordic Talks are already available, and three new ones will be added over the summer. They discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the green transition; the value of ugly vegetables and the massive amount of food waste caused by our attitude to bent cucumbers; and parental leave in the United States.
Listen to them HERE.
In the autumn, the podcasts will be followed by a series of online talks and then by global live events – all under the Nordic Talks banner. The most relevant talks from around the world will be edited and used in podcast episodes so that the conversation reaches even more people across national borders.
