The Nordic countries have committed to work towards attainment of the 17 Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations (UN) in September 2015. The Nordic countries generally rank highly on progress towards the 17 SDGs, but SDG 12, Sustainable Consumption and Production, is considered one of the most difficult to achieve.2 The Nordic Council of Ministers adopted the Generation 2030 programme in September 2017. In the programme, Sustainable Consumption and Production was chosen as a prioritised theme for the period 2017-2020. Generation 2030 also has a strong emphasis on the involvement of young people as actors for change.
