19:55 - Panel discussion - transforming the Nordic development model? We ask: Is there a potential conflict in the 2030 Agenda between economic growth (Goal 8) and the need to fight climate change and reduce loss of biodiversity? How may science better integrate with decision processes in government, business and in society in general to promote a new development model focusing wellbeing and planetary boundaries not economic growth as we know it today? How may the local and regional initiatives in this direction contribute and influence global processes?
