How do we create attractive societies and secure the competence for the industry's green transition?

Fri 11 Feb 2022 at 08:30-09:30

I Norrbotten and Västerbotten are currently making huge investments when Swedish industry takes a leading role in the transition to a fossil-free world. Places where establishments take place need to change from shrinking to growing societies to meet the need for competence.

Welcome to an interactive seminar on 11 February where you have an important role as part of the system for the transition to sustainability. Take the chance to listen to different perspectives and contribute to the overall picture. Together we accept the challenges of the future. During the seminar, we get to take part in explorations about the sustainable society of the future. We look up and think new. What skills are needed in the future, what attracts people to move in and what are the opportunities for skills exchange?

Together, we discuss the societal transformation started by the green industrial wave with its center in the north. How can the need for skills that arise in the wake of billion-dollar investments give strength to the growth of attractive and sustainable societies, and can Sweden take a leading role here as well? How do industry, municipalities and other sectors of society work with the issue?

The seminar is part of Vinnova's series Open up for innovation! Seminars with a focus on challenges and processes for achieving system change.
