Live stream from Nordic Council session 2020


The coronavirus pandemic may have made it impossible to hold a proper plenary Session, but important political summits will be held, and Week 44 will still be the highlight of the Nordic political year.

An open debate on COVID-19 and its impact on Nordic co-operation will be held 19:00–20:30 Lithuanian time on 27 October. The debate will be streamed live online.

Participants: The UN Secretary General, António Guterres, the President of the Nordic Council, Silja Dögg Gunnarsdóttir, and the Nordic prime ministers and heads of the devolved administrations: Mette Frederiksen, Sanna Marin, Stefan Löfven, Erna Solberg, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, Kim Kielsen, Bárður á Steig Nielsen and Veronica Thörnroos.
