Make us fall in love with your Nordic project

Do you have an idea for a Nordic project, an idea that can help place the Nordics in the minds of the world? A project that can highlight our Nordic values, helping set an agenda. An idea that has social clout with the ability to cut through the noise and start a conversation? If you do, we would love to hear from you.

What are we looking for?

In short creative Nordic collaborations. We want to help fund your ideas and share them with the world.

We love ideas, especially those that embrace Nordic values like openness, and trust, ideas that promote sustainability through creativity and innovation and ideas built on compassion and tolerance. It’s a lot to ask, as is the form below. But we’re looking forward to being inspired by your project.


Besides a possible grant to fund your project we will supply you with a brand-toolbox with all necessary assets and tools for you to use in your Nordic storytelling.

We’ll ask you to share information about your project to be used across The Nordics’  Social Media channels, helping to boost your project and make your Nordic story an integrated part of branding The Nordics.

And don’t forget to use our hashtag #TheNordics whenever possible.
