Making the transition to a more just and sustainable world is the most pressing issue of our time. It is our generation that has to redefine and realign our economy in order to avoid ecological and social disasters - and has to do so within the frames of the current financial system.

We’d like to invite you to an insightful executive seminar hosted by the Nordic Council of Ministers in collaboration with the Worldwatch Institute on the many ways the financial sector in its current state can support investment and capacity building in sustainable solutions for our planet.

Starting off with an exclusive presentation of the very latest State of the World report from the renowned Worldwatch Institute, we will then have Nordic and European experts on sustainability and financial markets share their perspective on what financial institutions in the Nordic region need to be doing to stay ahead in the years to come.

Speakers and experts include:

  • Ed Groark, president, Worldwatch Institute
  • Representative from NEFCO, the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation
  • Tom Prugh, co-director State of the World, Worldwatch Institute 
  • Louise Hertzberg, project leader, Nordic Council of Ministers
  • Per Grankvist, current affairs analyst and independent sustainability expert
  • Julia Vol, Manager Worldwatch Institute Europe
  • Matilda Ernkrans (S) Chairman of the Environment and Agriculture Committee

Date:  23 April 2015, 12:00 - 14:30 (Lunchwrap is being served from 11:30) 
Venue: Ängsö, Klara Strand, Klarabergsviadukten 90, Stockholm
