The day aims to be a moment of sharing knowledge about the experiences, the regulations and the existing laws at national and European level, and the necessities to push the development of the bioeconomy at national level. Many speech are planned (see the agenda) and discussion tables from which the needs and opportunities that the bioeconomy can open can be highlighted. The initial interventions will stimulate the discussion of the mutual learning workshop, which, using a participatory approach, will make it possible to understand the regulations, laws, practices and needs that emerge at Italian and European level in relation to the bioeconomy.

Addressing global challenges like climate change, land and ecosystem degradation and growing population forces industries, policy makers, researchers, but also end-consumers to seek new ways of producing and consuming that respect the ecological boundaries of our planet. End-consumers can play a central role in this systemic change toward a more sustainable model promoting growth and development thus preserving the ecosystem. Consumers and their behaviour play a major role in this transformation process. As demonstrated by a number of studies , consumer awareness, knowledge and education on sustainable production, consumption and lifestyles, are important factors determining behavioural changes toward a more responsible consumption. Despite several relevant intents , the bioeconomy policies have been criticised for giving marginal attention to civil society approaches and for their lack of transparency on who is involved in the formulation of policies . Initiatives to engage stakeholders and the public have been rare in the context of the bioeconomy, and most of them have tended to focus on one-way information transmission . Furthermore, the engagement has often been about public acceptance of policies rather than a true possibility to participate in the discussion about the nature of development . This is a missed opportunity as citizens’ involvement is key to identify and address current bottlenecks hampering the bioeconomy uptake, to develop bio-based products and applications that are considered valuable and desirable, to contribute to the design of the bioeconomy industry and policy agendas responding to the needs of civil society, and to accelerate the implementation of Bioeconomy strategies at national, regional and community level. This workshop contributed to the above mentioned challenges through: • The collection of good practices, needs and requirements related to the citizens' participatory approaches • Transforming the findings into actionable knowledge in the form of lessons learnt and recommendations for the design of the strategies, tools and activities to empower citizens to participate in the bioeconomy. The MML workshop analysd the following challenges related to the bottom-up participatory approach involving citizens in shaping of the bio-based economy: • How to promote attitudinal, purchase and consumption changes, increasing consumers’ awareness and knowledge of potential benefits of bio-based solutions. • How to enhance the involvement of the citizens through a bottom-up, participative and ‘open science’ approach. • How to empower citizens to become active players in the design, implementation and monitoring of the bio-based industrial and political agendas. • What type of information the bio-based industries and policy makers need to better tailor their products and policies to the needs of civil society. • How to co-design and implement strategies, digital tools and live activities enabling end-consumers to provide direct inputs to bio-based products and applications in a wide array of daily life situations.

This mobilization and mutual learning workshop aimed to discuss the topic of Green Banking among different stakeholders in the field of European and national public policy, private banking, and bio-economy. Namely the following discussants took part in the panel discussion: Lívia Vašáková, Head of Economic Analyses Section, European Comission; Klaudia Drábiková, 1st Deputy CEO 365.bank; Gabriela Mezeiová, PEDAL Consulting, BIOBRIDGES project; Miloš Blanárik, Prvá stavebná sporitelňa; Lucia Kopiarová, Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic, Expert on Sustainable finance; Daniel Ács, Internationalisation Responsible, Slovak Bioeconomy Cluster. Representatives of local governments, industry, research institutions, and civic organizations participated at the event in order to gain insight on the topic of green banking. The panel discussants were asked the following questions:  What is the direction of green thinking in banks?  How is green policy applied in Slovakia and how do clients identify with it?  Do clients prefer the electronic statements or not printing of confirmation?  What are the other options which green banking offers?  Is the Slovak market ready for green banking products (green loans, operational financing green deposits)?  What do green funds and bonds present?  How can banks align their “Green KPIs” in the context of the Slovak Bioeconomy Strategy which is currently under preparation?  What percentage of the “Green loans” could be allocated to the support of bio-based companies?  Which types of incentives can they concretely offer?  What are the minimum conditions for the bioeconomy actors (farmers, BBP producers, processing industry, brands, etc.) to be eligible for such funding?  How can we create synergies with other green funds and loans available through EŠIF? The third annual fin.techsummit created an opportunity for open discussions about the future of financial services that are heavily impacted by new technologies and digitalization. In scope of the Summit, the Side event on Green banking, looking for answers, among others to the following question: "How can green banking support the implementation of the upcoming Slovak Bioeconomy Strategy?", nicely fit into the "C2 challenge" identified in the project.

This mobilisation and mutual learning workshop aimed to facilitate dialogue between different stakeholders in the field of bio-economy, bringing together representatives of local governments, industry, research institutions, and consumer organizations to share experiences on sustainable circulation bio-economy especially in the Bratislava region. In particular, the workshop addressed the challenge: Changes in purchase habits of consumers. The event offered attendants of the biggest “urban” festival in Bratislava, which focuses on various aspects of living in a city through discussions, workshops and presentations, opportunity to discuss commercial specifics of biobased products (BBPs). There are many initiatives or even SMEs trying to market BBPs in Slovakia, but there are often missing the target due to insufficient knowledge and understanding of the existing challenges. This workshop was part of a joint-event with the project Biobridges. Also, the event was designed to offer opportunity for various stakeholders to meet and get to know each other, potentially creating networking synergies for the future.

The main activity of the event is to generate an interactive group discussion related to the up-scaling of primary bio-based (BB) materials to be used in food packaging and disposable tableware by identifying real ways in which to incorporate the use of BB materials in the added value chain related to the food industry. The event will be attended by representatives from the civil society, business sector, policy makers and research and education and will provide the necessary framework for collaboration and potential new business expansion. The final objective is to bring BB products closer to market by using the principals of circular economy that is both environmentally friendly and more resource efficient, thus lowering cost.
