The project Nordic Ways is a book of short insightful essays written by distinguished authors from all five countries representing a broad spectrum of Nordic life. The project features an impressive and august array of over 50 authors representing all five Nordic countries. It is our goal to share this platform with American decision-makers, academics, and a broad American audience, and in co-creation and collaboration offer solutions to some of the 21st century challenges facing all democratic societies. This project affords a real opportunity to see tangible evidence of what happens when sustainability is incorporated into urban planning; how education and healthcare can help prepare a new generation of productive and creative individuals; where innovation, arts and culture can be the basis for protecting rights and freedoms; and how businesses can be wildly successful without sacrificing values. Additionally we also organize various events related to this transatlantic partnership.
