Online Workshop: Promoting the biotransition through communication, education and stakeholders engagement

Online Workshop: Promoting the biotransition through communication, education and stakeholders engagement

Next october 14th from 11:00am to 1:00pm, Transition2Bio partners APRE and FVA are organizing, in the context of the sustainability week “Festival dello sviluppo sostenibile 2021” lead by ASviS the online workshop “Promoting the biotransition through communication, education and stakeholders engagement“.

Workshop objectives

The workshop (Language: italian) is addressed to regional actors (public administrations, clusters, innovation agencies, etc.) to strengthen their skills to communicate, educate and involve stakeholders in the implementation of bioeconomy strategies. Through the knowledge of good practices already implemented in some Italian regions, the workshop aims to present and deepen paths that can be started in your region to raise awareness of companies, primary producers, training and education institutions, citizens on new production activities, more sustainable consumption and lifestyles, in line with the objectives of the 2030 Agenda and the new Green Deal.

In particular, Goals 9 (Businesses, innovation and infrastructures) and 12 (Sustainable cities and communities) will be central in the discussion of new lifestyles and consumption that can contribute to the achievement of Goal 13 (Fight against climate change), showing how solutions deriving from the bioeconomy are essential to tackle and halt climate change.

The workshop is divided into two sessions: the first will show, through the stories of some representatives of regional actors, the good practices already implemented in different contexts. The second session will present some tools and methodologies developed by the European project Transition2Bio and the European bioeconomy network – EuBioNet initiative that regional actors will be able to reuse in their territories to promote the bioeconomy.
