ÅF Green Day 2015


The theme for this year is "Driving Sustainable Development through Connectivity".

It has been 15 years since the UN Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals.  Great progress have been seen in many areas, but in some areas the challenges are even bigger today than earlier.

ÅF Green Day will examine in what way cooperation in new constellations, is the key to a sustainable society with an effective usage of resources. 

How can synergy and cooperation between people, businesses, private and public sector influence the development towards a more sustainable society?

That is the question we dig deeper into during this years ÅF Green Day
