Green Growth Dialogue

The Vision

The Green Growth Dialogue is a West Nordic-Canadian network and a series of workshops in the West Nordic region managed by The University of the Faroe Islands.  The dialogue and network is also part of a new joint Nordic Master’s Programme in West Nordic Studies, Governance and Sustainable Management which enrolled the first students in August 2015.


The Green Growth Dialogue is more than just a conference, it is also an intensive Master's and PhD course worth 5 ECTS. The course follows the theme of the accompanying workshop and allows students to influence and impact the debate.
