Increased attention towards climate change and its impact on the Arctic have accelerated the calls for carbon neutrality and green transition. While it is still early to analyse the ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic, the public and decision makers are keen to build back better with calls for green recovery in domestic relief packages.


The Embassy of Finland in Oslo, Innovation Norway, and Arctic Frontiers are proud to invite you to this webinar together with the Minister for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade of Finland, Ville Skinnari, and representatives of industry in the Arctic to discuss the opportunities related to green hydrogen, circular economy, and cross-border collaboration.
