WOW Bites Go Nordic

Part of Nordic Matters

Did you know that Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden are in the top 5 of the world’s best countries in which to be a woman?

Six speakers from Nordic countries at the forefront of social change invite you to hear short talks and stories on a wide range of subjects. WOW Bites is going Nordic as part of Southbank Centre’s Nordic Matters.
