SCANDINAVIA - Leaders for Global Goals

Arno Froese

Achieving the historic goals set in the Paris climate agreement and the UN 2030 Agenda will require much hard work from all of us.

As part of our contribution, the Nordic prime ministers are launching the initiative: Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges.

The Nordic Region is the most integrated region in the world. By working closely together, our countries were the first to succeed in decoupling economic growth from climate change.

The Nordic Region has long led the way when it comes to the relationship between gender equality and economic growth. Investment in gender equality in the labor market—for example, parental leave and high-quality childcare—has been crucial in making this one of the most prosperous regions in the world.

Sharing what we have learned will help the world to make progress toward the ambitious targets set by global leaders two years ago. It will also enhance the global business potential of Nordic companies, create jobs and generate continued growth and prosperity in the region.

Arno's commentary

When it comes to health, wealth, prosperity, peace, and security, the Nordic nations are mostly at the top of any list. But, will that transfer to the rest of the world? Most unlikely. The 200+ nations on planet earth are very diverse in practice and in culture. Just recently, President Trump canceled the US participation in the Paris Climate Agreement. That fact, however, does not decrease the world’s intention to continue improving planet earth. That, too, is part of the global spirit that will lead to closer unity among the nations of the world. Peace will come, and so will prosperity and security, but it is only temporary.
