Green Growth on Culture and Sustainability

Sustainable development is not just about economy and environmental affairs. Culture and education play an important role on the path to a sustainable society. Read more on culture and sustainability in June-edition of the Green Growth the Nordic Way web magazine.

Green Growth web magazine follows the activities of the Nordic Council of Ministers in the areas of green growth, sustainable development and bioeconomy, principally in connection with the green growth initiative launched by the Nordic Prime Ministers, “The Nordic Region – leading in green growth” and the bioeconomy initiative NordBio.

Here is the summary of the June-edition:

Different paths to a sustainable society – new issue of “Green Growth the Nordic Way”

The concept of a new circular economy was the theme of the EU’s biggest event in the environment sector, Green Week in Brussels, which took place in the beginning of June.

In one of the two feature articles in the latest issue of “Green Growth the Nordic Way”, you can read about the activities of the Nordic Council of Ministers’ within the areas of waste management and sustainable building as presented at Green Week. A number of new reports also explore the Nordic potential in this field.

But sustainable development is not just about economy and environmental affairs. Culture and education play an important role on the path to a sustainable society.

The second feature article in this issue thus describes a number of activities within the field of cultural affairs with the explicit aim of strengthening the sustainability agenda. A holistic approach is part of the Nordic Way and the NCM will keep exploring these different paths to a more sustainable society.
