Afholdt 19 demands by Nordic youth to save biodiversity: Roundtable with Nordic political leaders & youth

3000 Nordic young people have taken a stand, proving their serious concerns about the biodiversity crises.

They have distilled their thoughts down to a Nordic Youth Position Paper with 19 action points to save biodiversity.

The world needs a much more ambitious work plan to halt species loss and restore biodiversity. It’s time for a ‘Paris Agreement for nature’. Are Nordic political leaders ready to take charge?

On 2 June, The Position Paper will be launched and discussed at a Roundtable with Nordic young people, Nordic ministers for environments and parliamentarians. Please join in!

The program will be in two parts:
1. A livestream launch & panel debate  
2. A deep-diving intergenerational dialogue

You are welcome to engage in both parts. 

Meet the panel:

Rebecka Le Moine, Member of Parliament, Sweden, Green Party

Krista Mikkonen, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Finland, Green League
