In 2024, SVID, in close collaboration with the Röhsska Museum and Svensk Form, is organising the Nordic & Baltic Design Summit 2024.

The purpose of the Nordic & Baltic Design Summit is to bring together Nordic and Baltic design and sustainability-driven companies and organisations, along with politicians, decision-makers, civil servants, and public representatives from ministries and departments in each country.

The theme of the conference is ”Design for a green, thriving, and socially sustainable Nordic and Baltic region”. We aim to establish collaboration and spread understanding of what is required to accelerate the transition and create a sustainable Nordic and Baltic region.

The Nordic & Baltic Design Summit will be a meeting place for networking, sharing experiences and ideas about the journey towards a green, competitive, and more socially sustainable society – using the power of design. The conference will take place in Gothenburg on 24–25 October, in connection to the opening of the Röhsska Museum’s new exhibition.


The objective for the conference is to become the starting point for a recurring activity within Nordic cooperation. The overarching goal is for the Nordic and Baltic region to be at the forefront of the green transition.
