Five new member proposals after meeting in Reykjavik

January 25, 2019

During the 21st to 23 January, the Centre group met for submission of five new proposals. These new proposals will be presented in April during the Nordic Council Theme-session in Copenhagen.

The Centre Group was gathered together with the rest of the Nordic Council in Reykjavik from 21-23 of January. We decided for the annual Summer meet to be held in Röros, Norway in the beginning of August under the theme of Transational Health Care.

There were also five new member proposals that were accepted by the Centre Group and will be presented for the rest of the Nordic Council during the spring session beginning of April.

Arman Temouri from Sweden put forth two of the member proposals. One of them brings attention to the problem of honor-related oppression and seeks to deepen the Nordic cooperation in honor-preventive work. The other proposal shows the benefits of diversity in board member composition.

Jenis av Rana from the Pharao Islands put forth a member proposal in cooperation with the Nordic Youth Council aiming to establish a Nordic common patient data-journal. Patients who agrees to such a system can then enjoy an improved patient security.

Rasmus Ling from Sweden in his member proposal stresses the importance of reducing the influence of global warming from the flight sector. The proposal encourages the Nordic Minister Council to work out a common strategy to reduce the emissions from flights.

Finally, Matti Vanhanen from Finland also presented a member proposal where he points out the beneficial effects of plaster treatment on farm fields rich in clay. Through the establishing of models for Nordic-Baltic cooperation, the overfertilization of the Baltic Sea can be halted.
