The annual meeting of Nordic Prime Ministers is on Tuesday, August 20th this year. Besides the Nordic Prime Ministers, representatives from the Åland Islands, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland, Angela Merkel will be present as a special guest. The meeting will discuss challenges facing Europe, including climate change, the arctic, human rights, gender equality, and the vision of the Prime Ministers for the next ten years.

Katrín Jakobsdóttir will meet one-on-one with Merkel and the other Prime Ministers. While here, the group will visit the Harpa Concert Hall, Viðey Island, Þingvellur, and Gljúfrastein, so if you really want to take a cheeky selfie with Merkel in the background, camp outside at one of these places until you see a group of official looking people.
