Working together to tackle climate change
This year's conference will address climate change in the North Sea Region, including topics such as climate governance, climate adaptation, and climate and youth.
Climate change is at the forefront of societal debate and finding ways forward is of the utmost importance. How can the North Sea Region take the lead and fast-track the green energy transition? How can we bolster the region against the impacts of global warming? This requires developing new innovations and advancing existing solutions. Join us for an exciting event designed to inspire and connect you to people and organisations caring strongly about climate change!
The conference is jointly hosted by Region Västra Götaland in Sweden and the North Sea Commission.
