The Nordic World Today

For some time, characteristically Nordic cuisine, design, films, music, and literature have been bringing the Nordic region international recognition.


The Nordic countries are always at the top of international rankings regarding openness, trust, equality, environment, and happiness.

Instead of emphasizing the distinctive features of each country, our aim is to promote what we have in common — our Nordic perspective, our values, and a culture that has grown out of a common history.

The Nordic perspective centers on openness and a belief in everyone’s right to express their opinions, trust in leaders in society, and the equal value of all people.


It also explores new ways of thinking, focusing on creativity and innovation. Finally, another important goal is the sustainable management of the environment and development of natural resources.
