Join Our Webinar “Urban Circular Bioeconomy: Stakeholder Engagement and Citizen Awareness” on 19 May 2021

As outlined in the EU Bioeconomy Strategy, cities have the potential to become major circular bioeconomy hubs, where biowaste is a feedstock for safe and sustainable bio-based products. Our projects SCALIBUR and HOOP have partnered with their sister Horizon 2020 projects for a six-part webinar series that will explore the state of the art of bioeconomy in Europe. In the webinar series we will take a closer look on the entire value chain, from collection to valorisation, and discuss business and policy issues relevant for the development of urban bioeconomy in Europe.

Field experts will come together to discuss how biowaste can contribute to the overall EU bioeconomy strategy and support cities in becoming circular bioeconomy hubs. The CSCP will host the second webinar of the series on the topic of Stakeholder Engagement and Citizen Awareness, sharing learnings and insights from the SCALIBUR and HOOP projects.

Updating an entire (bio)waste value chain requires the buy-in and long-term commitment of all stakeholders involved. This webinar will focus on strategies for engaging stakeholders, changing mindsets and behaviours, and establishing local leadership.
