Webinar: Nordic-Baltic Co-operation at a Crossroad

20 January 2021

On the 20th of January 2021, 9-11 am CET, the Nordic Council of Ministers and Oxford Research hosts a webinar on Nordic-Baltic co-operation. How can the Nordic-Baltic relations develop in a dynamic context and in possible new priorities? How can political stability and economic development be promoted through Nordic-Baltic co-operation?

How can countries in the region learn from each other, when facing sometimes similar, sometimes diverging societal challenges? How can the new vision 2030 for the Nordic Council of Ministers, with its focus on green development, competitiveness and socially sustainable development, be instrumental in the process?

How can we benefit from the exchange of culture, ideas and best practices? And what are the relevant barriers to be addressed?

These and many other questions will be addressed at a webinar organized by the Nordic Council of Ministers and Oxford Research as part of the ongoing evaluation of the Nordic-Baltic cooperation.
