ZVT in Almedalen 2016

For the third year in a row, ZVT joins in for the largest yearly society-politics gathering in Sweden - Almedals week (Almedalsveckan), commonly known as Almedalen. This is a week when more than 30 000 individuals from Sweden and even abroad come together to Visby town on a Swedish isle of Gotland, for a week of meetings, seminars, discussions, presenting what they have achieved and what is their vision for the future. We look forward to seeing you there.

We are hosting an hour long seminar "Politics, Finance and Industry" in the EU pavilion on Monday, July 4th, discussing risk sharing from different perspectives along with ZVT's pioneering objective to design a risk-sharing Financial Instrument to continue to support the green shipping investments. Details and participants can be found at our Event page for July 4th. The seminar will be broadcasted live online at www.europahuset.eu


We are also hosting a Mingle Session, Wednesday, July 6th. During two hours our toastmaster Jakob Lagercrantz, from the 2030-secretariat, will light-heartedly guide you through the results from the seminars. Join in, mingle and obtain a conclusion of the need for implementation of Financial Instruments for Risk Sharing to reach a new normal where green investments are the norm. For more information and to register for participation go to our Event page for July 6th.
