Sustainable Development in the Nordic Countries 2006

Abstract [en]

On April 6 2006, NOMESCO & NOSOSCO held a seminar as part of the project ‘sustainable development’.

The seminar was a follow-up on a number of alternative population projections up until 2055 that have been made by the Secretariat.

In order to obtain qualitative bids for the most vital issues when it comes to sustainable social – and health which are fertility, life expectancy and participation in working life, experts had been asked to submit their bid for these vital issues.

The main message from the seminar was that we live longer, but not long enough; that the chances of higher fertility in the Nordic countries than at present are slim, but that a number of active measures may be taken so that more people will contribute to working life and thus reduce the dependency load.

These include:

  • Johannes Nielsen, MOMESCO & NOSOSCO, Denmark; Summary.
  • Eystein Haram, Ministry of Labour and Social Inclusion, Norway; Opening of the Seminar.
  • Jesper Thøgersen, NOMESCO & NOSOSCO, Denmark; Alternative Population Projections.
  • Knud Juel, SIF, Denmark; Factors related to life expectancy.
  • Jesper Thøgersen, NOMESCO & NOSOSCO, Denmark; The Significance of Fertility to the Number of 0-6-Year-Olds.
  • Mika Gissler, Elina Hemminki & Mikko Kautto, STAKES, Finland; Trends in the Fertility in the Nordic Countries.
  • Bengt Eklind, Tom Nilstierna & Christer Löfgren, Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, Sweden; Swedish family policy.
  • Jesper Thøgersen, NOMESCO & NOSOSCO, Labour Force and Dependency Load.
  • Nabanitta Datta Gupta, SFI, Denmark; The Determinants of Non-Employment among Working-Age Individuals in Denmark.
  • Einar Øverbye, Oslo University College, Norway, Activation policy in the Nordic Countries.
  • Mika Gissler, Stakes, Finland; Conclusion.
