    water and fresh air but we must keep a keen eye on our environment if future generations are to enjoy the same privileges The Nordic countries have a long standing tradition of working together on matters related to nature and the environment Many positive results have already been achieved but they are not enough in a globalised world We must not restrict our efforts to the environment in the Nordic Region we must also address environmental issues in the Adjacent Areas the Arctic the EU and the rest of the world Nordic co operation on environmental matters covers everything from health to the marine environment outdoor life and sustainability The idea is that environmental issues should not be seen in isolation but that they are part of a greater whole For example hazardous materials are not just considered from a public health point of view but also in terms of their impact on nature Environment and health Hazardous chemicals and emissions are dangerous not only for the environment but also for our health As a result the aim is that by 2020 there will be no products on the market or emissions from production processes that are dangerous to the environment or to public health That is the highly ambitious target for Nordic co operation on chemicals Achieving it requires more in depth knowledge of current chemical usage Better databases and methods are needed to map hazardous chemicals The results of this work will be used both in the Nordic Region and to provide input into international forums like the EU and UN The pollutants in the air that we breathe should not be at a level at which they are damaging to the environment or health The emission of dangerous particles from industry cities and the transport sector must therefore be reduced The Nordic countries will provide input into international agreements and EU directives and work towards tightening up the limits for emissions in a way that takes Nordic conditions into account Most people agree that outdoor life and physical activity are important for good health but further study is needed to document this more fully The Nordic countries place particular emphasis on acquiring up to date knowledge of physical activity among children and young people and its significance for learning potential and motor functions The Nordic countries will also follow up on the work to protect the Arctic Region s nature and environment A strategy will be drawn up for action on in particular mercury the climate and POPs the common designation for many organic environmental pollutants that are slow to bio degrade According to a wide ranging 2004 Arctic Council report ACIA it is probable that the consequences of global warming will be particularly detrimental in the Arctic This is not just the case for the Arctic environment and its animal life but also for health construction roads and other infrastructure The climate in the Arctic is changing more rapidly than anywhere else in the world The
