Sustainable Shipping in the West Nordic Region

Ilisimatusarfik, Nuuk

The Green Growth Dialogue is the name of a new West Nordic-Canadian network and a series of workshops in the region. It is also part of a new joint Master’s programme in West Nordic Studies. The third Green Growth Dialogue workshop in Nuuk will focus on the theme of “Sustainable Shipping in the West Nordic Region”. The workshop format is two full days (30-31 May) with a morning and an afternoon session on a specific topic. 

We invite public and private stakeholders to participate in dialogue about shipping, and we also invite young people and entrepreneurs to join the workshop and lead their own discussions on other themes not necessarily related to sustainable shipping, but broadly under the main theme of green growth. Participation is free, but please sign up by 1 April 2016 to Maria Ackrén,
