The four French institutes in the Nordic region (Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland) launched the French Institute Nordic Award (FINA) in 2020. This award aims to promote cultural and scientific cooperation between France and the Nordic countries and to reward outstanding achievements in this field.
During the webinar, the French Institutes will introduce the four laureates of the award – and their research work on nature and biodiversity conservation.
Helena Tukiainen (Finland), Justine Ramage (Sweden), Julie Strand (Denmark), and Annabel Mempel (Norway) will discuss the dynamics of geodiversity and biodiversity, the impact of climate change on the landscapes and the people, the safeguard of genetics, and the connections between nature conservation and international cooperation.
We would like to thank the French-Swedish Association for Research, our partner for the FINA award and Charlie Gullström, Senior Researcher at RISE and moderator of the event.
The four laureates will travel to Marseille to attend the IUCN Congress.
The IUCN World Conservation Congress is the world’s largest nature conservation event. It brings together leaders from government, civil society, indigenous peoples’ organizations, business and academia to determine the world’s most pressing environmental and development challenges, and actions to address them. In 2021, France will host the World Conservation Congress in Marseille "One nature, one future".
