31 Aug – 1 Sep Study Trip to Stockholm – World Trade Day by Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and Stockholm dynamic Start up Scene

Welcome to join The Swedish Chamber of Commerce’s Study Trip

to learn more about Stockholm’s start up and innovation scene and

to participate at the World Trade Day 2017 by Stockholm Chamber of Commerce

“Cities as Engines of Trade”

 

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce invites you to sign up for our annual 2-day Study Trip. We will visit Stockholm – the heart f Scandinavia to learn more about its dynamic start up scene and how the city’s entrepreneurial culture has nourished numerous successful global companies.

Day one we will start at the Royal Dutch Embassy for two very interesting presentations about Innovation and Start up Stockholm.  After lunch we will continue to Konsert Huset for the World Trade Day 2017 where prominent speakers will be highlighting the role global citities play in enchansing and supporting international commerce, and sharing their insights. The information technology and transportation revolutions, the rapid rise of emerging markets, finance globalization and the brisk use of global value chains have intensified international trade. Internationalization is becoming ever-more significant, so cities are playing an increasingly prominent role in the global economy. With its inflow and outflow of people, ideas, capital and trade, a truly global city is an entity that boosts job creation, innovation and growth. Despite the positive impact of global cities, there is an anti-trade rhetoric reaction and a looming threat of protectionism. The World Trade Day is organized in collaboration by Stockholm Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with ICC Sweden and Trade Partners Sweden/Agenturföretagen.

Our second day in Stockholm will consist of a number of inspiring study visits to some of the most promising up-and-coming Swedish start-ups envirionments starting in the moring at SUP46. The other companies will be reveald soon on this site.

The program starts at 10.00 on August 31, 2017 and end at 17.00 on September 1, 2017. Welcome to see the full Program and other details below.

October 10, 2017 #NordicTalks2017

NO TIME TO WASTE!
The UN Sustainable Development Goals

 

Date: 10 October, 2017
Time: 16.00 – 20.00

The world has set a very ambitious and necessary agenda for 2030: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). All 193 Member States of the United Nations have committed themselves to solving the world’s biggest challenges: ending global poverty, protecting our planet and ensuring a life of dignity for all. Fulfilling these ambitions will take an unprecedented effort by all sectors in society – and business has to play a very important role in the process. Business has to invent, develop and launch countless new ideas and solutions within a very short time. But the SDGs not only identify where we have to be in 2030 to create a sustainable world, they also outline new markets and opportunities for companies all over the world – they change the role of business.

The UN Global Compact is committed to being a leading catalyst for that transformation and in turning the Global Goals into local business. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce, Danish Dutch Business Club, The Finnish Dutch Chamber of Commerce in co-operation with the Embassies of Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway welcomes you to #NordicTalks 2017 focused on how the Nordic countries and their global industries apply the Global Goals in to their Sustainability Development Strategies.

On October 10 we will discuss, network, learn and share information about how to advance the SDGs through business activities and partnerships.

Andre Veneman, Sustainability Director Akzo Nobel
Hannie Stappers Director Public Affairs Rockwool
Robert A. Taylor Director, Sustainability UPM Raflatac
Rob Wolters,  Country Manager Ericsson Netherlands
Annelien van Meer, Managing Director Enact Netherlands

Moderator and presentation Global Development Challenges with Gapminder:
