The world around us is full of tensions and problems, but at the same time it is waiting for and needs shared solutions. The corona crisis has highlighted the importance and significance of international cooperation. No one can solve the world’s problems alone. Education, clean energy and water solutions, development of health systems, and digitalization are all what the world needs in this decade. Economic growth cannot continue sustainably without green investment. The Paris Agreement is a good start, but the European Green Deal of this decade must be taken from the national to the regional and city levels.
What is needed is bold and innovative future investment – not ones that just maintain. We want to be on the new side of history, not on the old one. Finland is showing the way and leading by example in green growth in climate policy, equality and social justice, together with the other Nordic countries and the EU.
