Welcome to this member meeting for an engaging discussion on two critical aspects of sustainability in today's world.

First, we will delve into the innovative Nordic Voluntary Sub-National Review, where Åsa Ström Hildestrand from Nordregio will showcase how Nordic municipalities are leading the way in reporting their sustainability efforts to the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF).

Following this, we will navigate the evolving landscape of sustainability amidst increasing global uncertainty and societal division. With significant geopolitical shifts and the lingering effects of recent economic crises, the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) faces new challenges.

We'll examine how shifting government priorities impact sustainability efforts and explore the vital role universities can play in maintaining the sustainability discourse and fostering global collaboration.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable perspectives on sustaining and advancing sustainability initiatives in an ever-changing world.

Insights will be shared by Maria Cortes-Puch, Vice President of Networks at the global UN SDSN, and Gabriel Wikström, former Swedish National Coordinator for Agenda 2030.
