An international consensus about the need of a new sustainable economic model, where a good economy and a healthy environment are mutually beneficial, has been reached by now. A series of intergovernmental working groups and state-led initiatives already advance sustainable economies. The Nordic countries are a vanguard in this respect, and have led the international community in adopting Green Economy policies. Join the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs for a panel made up of governmental representatives from the five Nordic countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland). This panel will present some of the ideas behind the Green Economy model and how these ideas can be implemented elsewhere, including in the United States. This event is presented on the occasion of the release of the volume Nordic Ways (Johns Hopkins University/Brookings Institution, 2016), which explores what it means to be Nordic in entrepreneurship, the arts, culture, innovation, education and a commitment to democratic values and environmental sustainability.
