Final seminar of the Nordic Demography Programme

Seminar and workshop, April 23 at Nordregio, Stockholm, Sweden

Outmigration of young people, ageing populations and low birth rates. These are trends that imply severe challenges to municipalities and regions in many parts of the Nordic countries; potentially leading to weakening tax bases, difficulties in providing services and challenges in finding or maintaining an appropriate labour force. What can regions and municipalities do to address these challenges themselves? What should be done at the national level?

On April 23, Nordregio welcomes you to a seminar and workshop where we will focus on these questions. Together with Nordic regions and municipalities, NGOs and researchers, we will have a day of knowledge sharing based on the results and lessons learned from the six Nordic projects that received funding from the Nordic Demography Programme 2014-2015.

The Nordic Demography Programme was initiated in 2012 with the aim to focus on demographic changes and their impact on development in Nordic regions and municipalities outside the metropolitan areas.

The funded projects include local or regional authorities from at least two Nordic countries, as well as private organisations or NGOs that cooperate with public authorities. For more information about the projects, see link to the right.
