Green Technology and Innovation: A Nordic Model
Joint event with World Affairs Council
This event takes place at: Riddell Williams 1001 4th Avenue, Floor 45, Seattle, WA 98154. Registration is required to attend.
The Nordic countries and Washington State share ambitions to innovate and develop sustainable solutions to the growing challenges their cities face from climate change, urbanization, and limited natural resources. These challenges include complex issues around providing energy, healthcare, transportation, and waste and water management, and require addressing the concerns of multiple stakeholders. Innovative “smart cities” will be the best positioned to find solutions to these interconnected challenges.
Please join the World Affairs Council and Nordic Heritage Museum for a panel discussion with His Excellency Lars Gert Lose, Ambassador of Denmark to the United States, the Chief Technology Officer and Director of the Department of Information Technology for the City of Seattle Michael Mattmiller, and Director of the Seattle Department of Transportation Scott Kubly for a conversation on building and sustaining smart cities. Please note that this program does not take place at Nordic Heritage Museum.
The formal program will take place from 6-7:30pm. Join us immediately following for a networking reception and Pacific Northwest book launch for the Nordic Ways publication (refreshments will be provided).
Cost: This event is free to the public but registration is required.
Come and be inspired by the values, traditions, art,
and spirit of the Nordic peoples.
