Forum Programme

The Future Forum panels present technology- and human-centered sustainable solutions to societal challenges in the fields of health, transport, environment and culture, which are Northern Dimension thematic partnerships. Voice is given to representatives of civil society, university sector, business and government. The exhibition area presents fresh solutions to societal challenges – particularly those generated by students and youth.

The Forum is a part of the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2019. It serves as the people-to-people pre-event to the "Clean and Global North - High-Level Event on Regional Cooperation in the North event", organized by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland on 29 November in Finlandia Hall, Helsinki. The invitation-only event will also acknowledge the 20-year anniversary of the Northern Dimension.
