INVITE: Book release – The Nordic Report 03

Form/Design Center and the SUSTAINORDIC network, invites you to the launch of The Nordic Report 03.  

17th of November 12:00 PM (GMT + 2)

This year’s publication will be launched in a new and exciting format, which will take place both online at the SUSTAINORDIC website and through various ‘pop-up’ events across the globe! 

Key themes from The Nordic Report 03, such as the transition into the circular economy, the need for new policies and how to take action now to create a more sustainable production and consumption, will be discussed by a Nordic expert panel in a short launch film.  

Keep an eye on our social media channels for a pop-up launch event near you, or simply join us online from wherever you are on the SUSTAINORDIC website.  

“There is a global need for sustainable solutions now as a green recovery from the covid-19 pandemic is high on the agenda. Many Nordic countries have recently launched their circular economy strategies and roadmaps, and there are plenty of inspiring Nordic solutions that can accelerate the transition to a circular economy. The Nordic Report is a great platform to present these solutions not only in Nordics but internationally too.” 
Kari Herlevi  Project Director Circular Economy SITRA, Finland  

“We can make the paradigm shift happen and go circular today – if we set our minds to it. SUSTAINORDIC is one great example on this.”

About the Nordic Report 03
The Nordic Report 03, the third and final report, gathers some of the most prominent and sharpest Nordic voices within the Agenda 2030 UN Global Goal 12 – Sustainable Production and Consumption.

SUSTAINORDIC is a platform and network that aims to promote sustainable consumption and production based on a Nordic perspective, in accordance with the UN’s Global Goal 12 of Agenda 2030. The initiative takes its starting point in a joint Manifesto with twelve underlying subgoals. The Manifesto has interpreted Goal 12 into more concrete points of action which resonate with Nordic values.
