Matchmaking workshop October 2022

On 13-14 October, Nordic municipalities and organisations joined Nordregio for a two-day event of peer-to-peer workshops and matchmaking sessions. Together, the representatives joined forces to establish roadmaps for different SDG partnerships over the next six months. Some municipalities will test different stakeholder engagement methods together and share best practices, others will dive into municipal processes and how to improve information-based decision-making processes at the administration level and councils. If you are interested in learning more or joining the process, contact the Project Manager: Åsa Ström Hildestrand

Webinar series

Between February and March 2022, Nordregio's organised a Localising Agenda 2030 webinar series
This webinar series welcomed local officials and civil society networks across the Nordics that work actively with the SDGs. Speakers from Nordic municipalities shared their tested tools, methods, and experiences working with the SDGs - in leadership & steering, indicator development, and sustainable public procurement. The aim was to strengthen linkages and collaboration across Nordic municipalities and inspire further learning and action towards the 2030 goals. Watch recordings from all webinars here:

From December 2020 through February 2021, Nordregio organised a knowledge-exchange webinar series for those working with sustainability issues and SDGs in Nordic municipalities and regions. The series consisted of six thematic sessions on implementing and monitoring select SDGs: from climate and gender to digitalisation and sustainable consumption.
