The Nordic session is targeted for people with dementia and their families in the form as workshop with the overall theme "Dementia-friendly communities - what we want." The workshop is led by Steen Kabel, Danish journalist. For each working group attends a helper from Norway, Sweden and Denmark acts as moderator.

The purpose of the Nordic workshop is:

• to create a platform where people with dementia and relatives' voices are heard
