Issues for Nordic co-operation on planning were updated in August 2012 when a new joint action plan was approved. This is dealing with three perspectives: sustainable urban development (including socio-economic aspects, housing, deprived areas, and the climate change) the European landscape convention and maritime spatial planning. The Nordic planning authorities meet annually discussing major general questions. In addition to that, thematic seminars are arranged together with municipalities, county administrative boards and other parts of society.
In the field of housing the Nordic countries are partners for exchange of knowledge and experiences. Annually a Nordic meeting on housing administrative issues is arranged. On certain occasions the co-operation is completed with workshops. A joint webpage is presented under Related information
