About Nordic Network

Nordic Network

A new way of cooperating in the Nordic countries

Nordic Network is a network hub bringing organisations, institutions and projects in the Nordic countries together. We wish to develop www.nordicnet.org into a network-based online hub where you will be able to sign up, find Nordic partners and widen your network.

This is only the beginning - the future is full of possibilities

In this initial phase, your organisation will be able to:

  • Search for Nordic partners and other organisations by category 
  • Find new partners Nordic partners and thereby:
    • Plan shared seminars and events
    • Work on shared political statements
    • Create an advisory network for the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Council  

Nordic Network provides a whole new way of cooperating in the Nordic countries.

Target group

Are you a Nordic organisation placed in the Nordic countries or abroad? Then you can register into the network. The website is aimed at different types of Nordic associations and organisations with activities in the Nordic countries:

  • Nordic umbrella organisations and confederations
  • Informal Nordic network between two or more countries
  • Nordic institutions
  • Nordic projects
  • Other stakeholders with an interest in Nordic cooperation

A strong Nordic civil society

Cooperation in the Nordic countries is based on the principle of a strong civil society which has influence on decision-making processes. We wish to establish a forum for Nordic civil society organisations and identify new ways of promoting Nordic cooperation.  www.nordicnet.org makes it easier for your organisation to find new partners.

With Nordic Network, we also want to strengthen cooperation between civil society organisations and the Nordic Council of Ministers/Nordic Council by creating an advisory network for Nordic decision makers. 

Purpose

The purpose of the Nordic Network is to create a dynamic project, which will join civil society with official Nordic cooperative bodies. It is important for the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Council to consolidate their work through consultation with experts and for civil society to strengthen its voice and position. We believe that consolidating the dialogue between civil society organisations and the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Council to be of the utmost importance. This website will enable organisations to act as advisory and instigating bodies for the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Council on various issues.

This is just the beginning! Join us from the start and participate in developing the new Nordic Network.

Core values

Nordic Network works on the basis of the values that underpin the Nordic social model: trust, freedom and responsibility, openness and inclusion, tolerance, equality and democracy and respect for the tradition of dialogue with fellow citizens in democratic institutions. We welcome all organisations who share these Nordic welfare state core values.
