Bertel Haarder, President of the Nordic Council, and Ken Macintosh, Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament, met online on 26 March. The agenda included working together at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow in November.

The meeting reflected the good relations between the Nordic Council and the Scottish Parliament. It followed up on a previous meeting in January 2020, when a delegation from the Council visited Edinburgh. Both sides continue to express a mutual interest in working more closely together.

In concrete terms, plans for working together at COP26 have now been discussed. The details have yet to be finalised but may include joint events at the Nordic Pavilion in Glasgow, where the Nordic Council will host several events.

“Personally, I am delighted that the Scottish Parliament and the Nordic Council will work together on COP26. Both parties see the climate as a top priority and recognise that the climate goals can only be met through international co-operation. The Nordic countries share a vision of becoming the world’s most sustainable and integrated region by 2030, and we are used to working with others,” Haarder says.
