VIDEO: CLOSER annual conference with a focus on Agenda 2030

Wednesday, November 29, 2023

In order to meet the Agenda 2030 goals, we need to keep our eyes high and cooperate, that was the common thread through CLOSER's annual conference that started on March 23. See here how all the different initiatives that CLOSER runs together with all our partners can be part of the development to reach the goals. Take part in the entire recording here! 

We cannot understand the future by looking back, it moves too fast. 


Per-Olof Arnäs, Chairman Digitalised Logistics, CLOSER

To reach the Agenda 2030 goals, we must work in a coordinated manner. Because everyone can win, but also lose if we don't coordinate resources as partners instead of competitors. We also need to create faster learning and a faster rate of innovation, where the focus is on understanding what we learn from the projects and how we can scale them up. 

Maria Stenström, Responsible for behavior & mobility issues, 2030 Secretariat
