Putting sound to global challenges

‘Nordic Talks’ is a series of talks and podcast episodes addressing the biggest global challenges. 

Through conversations with some of the brightest minds in the Nordics and their counterparts from around the world we want to provide a space for contemplation and to share inspiration on how to take action on sustainability issues in our everyday lives. All Nordic Talks are dedicated to addressing the UN's Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) challenges.

 
NORDIC TALKS is brought to you by The Nordics, a project under The Nordic Council of Ministers.
