For more information: Concept Note SDSN Northern Europe
The Sustainable Development Solutions Network Northern Europe (SDSN NE) is a regional SDSN network for Northern Europe and part of the global SDSN. The SDSN NE pools knowledge, experience and capacities of the regions’ academic, business and civil society actors and strives to promote the national and regional sustainable development of Northern Europe, as well as the region’s efforts for sustainable development worldwide. SDSN NE intends to place the search for and creation of new solutions at the heart of its network activities, and to work closely with existing processes in politics and with business. We want to ask questions and join with others to develop answers.
Nordic Countries ready for the Sustainable Development Goals
A recent stress test conducted by the SDSN and Bertelsmann Stiftung, SDGs: Are the Rich Countries Ready?, reveals the readiness and capacity of OECD countries to meet the targets of the SDGs. The stress test shows that Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland can be considered ready for the SDGs and in a good position to foster further improvements in terms of sustainable development. Science, business and government in the Northern European region are already leaders in terms of promoting a sustainable model, yet more can be done. The SDSN NE can integrate existing actions and knowledge to help stakeholders take the next step. It provides an opportunity to highlight the region as a leader in the implementation of the SDGs, to internationalise critical knowledge, solutions, national policies and social models. The SDSN NE will strive to position sustainability as comparative advantage and make sure that opportunity is available for business to contribute to sustainable solutions and create shareholder value. This readiness and the fact that the Northern European region already has the necessary institutions and monitoring mechanisms for the SDGs is an excellent foundation for the SDSN NE to promote long-term solutions and systemic transformation.Read more on country profiles
