Nordic webinar 14th June 2022: Climate and Security – how to navigate in the new geopolitical context?

The world is changing fast, and a state of crisis seems to be the new normal. The covid-19 pandemic was not yet over when the geopolitical conflict struck at the heart of Europe. Drastic measures have been taken in response already, but there is no clear end in sight.

Where: Webinar – see the webinar here
Time: 09.00-11.30 CET
