Next 28 September, SUSTRACK will gather in Brussels with no less than 8 like-minded projects and a wide array of professionals and experts in bioeconomy to exchange on the future of a circular bioeconomy in Europe.
The public conference “Biocircularcities unlocked – The Brussels stop” (whole programme here) is the final event of the BBI-JU Biocircularcities project, started in October 2021. For two years, the Biocircularcities partners explored the development of economically and environmentally efficient models for organic waste in three pilot areas. What is the result? Three models for new, more circular, value chains in the Pazardzhik region (Bulgaria), the metropolitan city of Naples (Italy), and the metropolitan area of Barcelona (Spain).
They also produced policy recommendations and guidelines to boost a circular bioeconomy, and a webtool to support the identification of the most suitable bio-circular technologies for improving the biowaste management.
All these outcomes will be presented in Brussels on 28 September. During the first roundtable, “Why and how to unlock a local and circular bioeconomy – Barriers and solutions”, partners of the Biocircularcities project will be joined by experts and practitioners to present the project’s main outputs and discuss the benefits of unlocking a local and circular bioeconomy. In the second session, “Local bioeconomy in practice – A discussion with pilot territories”, the three pilot territories will come back on the journey they took and share concrete feedback on their experience. The WaysTUP project will also add its insight on how they supported their own pilots with behavioural change.
The day will close on an Agora for participants to bring home new ideas to grow a circular bioeconomy. This is where you will have the pleasure to meet SUSTRACK! We will have a stand where you can get in touch with us and better know our project!
