About the event

The Norwegian Business Council, together with the other Nordic Business Councils invite you to dive deeper into the world of water at the September Nordic Sundowner, organised by the Finnish Business Council.

As we are celebrating the Year of Sustainability in the UAE, we would like to highlight the fact that water is increasingly becoming the most precious resource in the modern era.

Join us for an interactive and inspiring panel discussion with our fabulous speakers who will talk about water from different perspectives. Learn about the impact of fast fashion on water pollution, as well as the efforts of companies such as Lamor and Nokia in promoting water sustainability and conservation. All followed by networking and drinks with the Nordic business community.
