“I really look forward to discussing sustainable development in the Arctic. We have a sold out session, which means there will be plenty of interested parties to discuss the joint transformation towards an even more sustainable earth. EU has shaped the framework for this week’s many workshops and debates. It is possible for ones influence to have an impact, and we are very much looking forward to that”.
