For Better or Worse? Shaping a Norwegian EU-agreement and Climate Politics Ahead.
In the future, Norwegian climate politics will be closely interlinked with EU climate politics. EU is negotiating and updating its climate-framework, and when that is set Norway will negotiate the details in their agreement with EU.
Norway is preparing this work, and Norwegian big business is updated, posing all the right questions. To match this, strengthen, and mobilize Norwegian NGOs in their climate advocacy work, ForUM, WWF, and Naturvernforbundet are inviting NGOs to a full day workshop on March 7:th. There Anja Kollmuss from CAN Europe, Elin Lerum Boasson from CICERO, and Dag Svarstad from KLD will help us to develop a better understanding for what is at stake, and how it can be influenced.
Venue: ForUM for Utvikling og Miljø, Storgata 11, Oslo Date: 7:th of March 2017 at 09.30 Registration: To firstname.lastname@example.org until 3:rd of March at 12.00. It is possible to register for parts of the day.
