These days, Arctic Consensus is participating in the conference ’People Profit Planet’ in Musikkens Hus in Aalborg. The conference is taking place on September 10 – 11 in connection with the Sustainability festival in Aalborg which takes place between September 8-15. 

People Profit Planet is a two day-conference with a focus on new markets and partnership opportunities within the fields of sustainable energy, ICT, health, agriculture and many more. During the conference an insight is provided of the challenges connected to sustainable cross-sector partnerships between Denmark and other countries.

The topics of the conference are presented with presentations by both local and foreign actors, where the topics are viewed in the perspective of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In the same way, the purpose of the conference is to establish a dialogue concerning a partnership-driven collaboration. This is both when it comes to politicians and Danish foundations, as well as establishing possibilities within civil society, the private sector, academia and the government of building networks, improving existing collaborations and creating visibility within research, projects, products, partnerships and members.

The participants during the days are both people within the private sector, civil society, politicians, researchers, opinionmakers, mainstream and niche media and public actors within the North Jutland Region.

People Profit Planet is organized by Access2innovation in collaboration with: Confederation of Danish Industry, Danish Red Cross, Folkekirkens Nødhjælp, WWF Denmark, Aalborg University, SMART Log, House of Energy, BrainsBusiness and Municipality of Aalborg. Read more about the conference at their website here.
