Taking the path towards sustainability seems to be a very complex task for all players involved and requires them to recognize and deal with the complex web of life. The Nordic countries are often referred to as norm entrepreneurs interested in addressing the changes in social norms. This is often indicated in a variety of parameters (e.g. Global Happiness Index, wealth, social system, SDGs, Ecological Footprint). The reader will be shown what the main patterns of Sustainability are in each Nordic country presented by researches of all these countries. Does a special Nordic sustainability really exist?

What are the critical aspects of sustainability in the Nordic countries? By using systemic and narrative methods some intertwining knots are discovered in an interdisciplinary way. Yet the critical analysis does not end with mere quantifying. There is also a qualitative analysis as well. Each of the authors enjoyed a maximum amount of freedom in reseaching sustainability in their countries. SDGs are only used in an indirect way relative to the authors' position. Similarities and differences between the Nordic countries may be found from a neutral perspective at the end of the book.
