What are the important global trends, threats and opportunities linked to resource scarcity, climate change, shifts in energy markets, sustainable investments and sustainable innovation. Join Global Outlook Norway to find the answers.


Global Outlook Norway aims to strengthen business, political and academic leaders, by enabling them to be part of the solutions needed for a more sustainable development. Businesses can and should play a leading role in shaping the global, regional and industrial agendas. Global Outlook Norway will provide necessary knowledge to do so.


Global Outlook Norway is co-hosted by three Norwegian business clusters: GCE NODEEyde-nettverket and Maritimt Forum. The conference is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and held in conjunction with Arendalsuka, a well-known week of political and societal debate in Arendal every August.


In 2015, the second edition of Global Outlook Norway focused on global insecurity and the resource battle.


"We live in a fast-moving, highly interconnected world, and our existing systems, structures and formal institutions no longer suffice. Pressing global problems can arise quickly and without warning. At the same time, new and unprecedented opportunities for global growth and positive change are emerging and must be harnessed for the future of humanity.”Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman World Economic Forum.
