Barents Co-operation 25 Years – Fostering Common Opportunities in the European Arctic
Venue: The Swedish Representation to the EU, Square de Meeus 30

Time: Tuesday 5 June 8:30-13:00 followed by Barents Cooperation 25 Years Anniversary Lunch (Arctic seafood and refreshments)

The Barents cooperation, covering northernmost Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia, is a unique cooperation in the European Arctic

Through 25 years, it has delivered high level dialogue in the region along with everyday people-to-people collaboration and regional cooperation. It is a unique platform that involves the EU as a participating partner, together with Iceland and Denmark and representatives from the indigenous communities.

The Arctic is of enhanced importance due to increasing challenges that also delivers new opportunities.
It is of immense importance to keep the low-tension in the region to be able to tackle the common global challenges, building on a day to day, local and regional collaboration over the borders in the European Arctic region.

The seminar will discuss how the Barents cooperation these 25 years have been of great importance and a best practice for cross-border cooperation in Northern Europe, and how we see the Barents cooperation develop into the future.

High-level speakers and practitioners from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Russia and the EU will present the best practices for cross-border cooperation in the Barents region followed by a “Talking Barents” panel debate.

The Seminar agenda will be sent out by the end of April.
