Report summary

The Green Growth Dialogue is a West Nordic-Canadian network established in 2015 and managed by The University of the Faroe Islands. The Green Growth Dialogue is organised as a series of workshops in the West Nordic region. Establishment of the network as well as the first three workshops were supported by NORA. Workshops took place in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands (April 2015), Reykjavik, Iceland (August 2015), and in Nuuk, Greenland (May 2016). The dialogue and network is also connected to the Joint Nordic Master’s Programme in West Nordic Studies, Governance and Sustainable Management which enrolled the first students in August 2015.
