ENHANCE LOCAL BIOECONOMY STRATEGIES AND ACTION PLANS Bioeconomia in Friuli Venezia Giulia - Focus sulla formazione e l'orientamento a supporto di uno sviluppo sostenibile e circolare La Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia organizza un importante evento rivolto ai rappresentanti delle Amministrazioni pubbliche, della ricerca, del settore produttivo, della società civile, della scuola, della formazione, e dell’Università per analizzare congiuntamente il tema della Formazione nell’ambito di un settore strategico a livello europeo, quale la Bioeconomia. Tale settore coinvolge le attività economiche che utilizzano le bio-risorse rinnovabili del suolo e del mare (colture agricole, foreste, animali e micro-organismi terrestri e marini) per produrre cibo, materiali e energia. Valorizzando la vocazione manifatturiera innovativa, la presenza di un’offerta formativa e scientifica di eccellenza e la conseguente capacità di produrre capitale umano qualificato, l’Amministrazione regionale ha individuato la Bioeconomia quale potenziale opportunità di sviluppo economico in Friuli Venezia Giulia e in tale contesto il tema della formazione assume una valenza strategica. Nel corso dell’evento verranno esaminate con i partecipanti le seguenti tematiche: • Come sensibilizzare il mondo produttivo e anticipare i bisogni formativi legati alle opportunità della Bioeconomia; • Come formare i formatori; • Come orientare i giovani, le famiglie e gli insegnanti/formatori. Ai lavori saranno anche presenti esperti di livello nazionale, i quali illustreranno alcune buone pratiche. La partecipazione all'evento della mattina è rivolta ad esperti su invito, per partecipare alla sessione del pomeriggio è necessario iscriversi tramite il seguente link: http://eventi.regione.fvg.it/Eventi/dettaglioEvento.asp?evento=16141 Contatti: Servizio apprendimento permanente e Fondo Sociale Europeo Tel. 040 3775103 email: formazionelavoro@regione.fvg.it ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Description: ENHANCE LOCAL BIOECONOMY STRATEGIES AND ACTION PLANS Bioeconomy in Friuli Venezia Giulia - Focus on training and orientation to support sustainable and circular development The Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia organized an important event targeted at representatives of public administrations, research, the productive sector, civil society, school, training, and the university to jointly analyze the theme of training within a strategic sector at European level, such as the Bioeconomy. This sector involves economic activities that use renewable bio-resources of soil and sea (agricultural crops, forests, animals and micro-organisms on land and sea) to produce food, materials and energy. Valuing the innovative manufacturing vocation, the presence of an excellent educational and scientific offer and the consequent ability to produce qualified human capital, the Regional Administration has identified the Bioeconomy as a potential opportunity for economic development in Friuli Venezia Giulia and in this context the training is of strategic importance. During the event, the following topics will be examined with the participants: • How to sensitize the productive world and anticipate the training needs related to the opportunities of the Bioeconomy; • How to train the trainers; • How to guide young people, families and teachers / trainers. At the work there will also be experts at national level, who will illustrate some good practices. Participation in the morning event is addressed to experts by invitation, to participate in the afternoon session it is necessary to register via the following link: http://eventi.regione.fvg.it/Eventi/dettaglioEvento.asp?evento=16141 Contacts: Lifelong learning service and European Social Fund Tel. 040 3775103 email: formazionelavoro@regione.fvg.it

La bioeconomía marca el rumbo hacia un modelo económico más sostenible, circular y eficiente en el uso de los recursos. Su objetivo es una economía más innovadora y de bajas emisiones, que produce alimentos, energía y bienes industriales y da valor a toneladas de residuos biológicos y materiales residuales. En esta jornada, compuesta por tres bloques (presentaciones, mesa redonda y taller) se tratará de reunir a los principales agentes del sector (investigadores, empresas, sociedad civil y administración) para debatir entorno a los principales retos y desafíos que tiene la bioeconomía, y los productos que se obtienen de ella (bioproductos), y se tratará de dar soluciones a dichos retos. Para ello, se creará un entorno propicio donde se potencie la colaboración intersectorial, cambiando los roles y respondiendo a distintos desafíos. Bioeconomy sets the course for a more sustainable, circular and efficient economic model in the use of resources. Its objective is a more innovative and low-emission economy, which produces food, energy and industrial goods and gives value to tons of biological waste and residual materials. The event will be stuctured in three parts (presentations, round table and workshop), the stakeholders involved in bioeconomy (researchers, companies, civil society and administration) will be brought together to discuss the main challenges that the bioeconomy has, and will try to provide solutions to these challenges. To this end, an enabling environment will be created where intersectoral collaboration is enhanced, changing roles and answering to different challenges.

Die Europäische Union hat erkannt, dass unsere Gesellschaften über die Tragfähigkeit der planetarischen Grenzen hinaus produzieren und konsumieren. Um dem zu begegnen hat sie Strategien entworfen, um die europäische Produktion und den Konsum kreisläufiger und klimafreundlicher gestalten zu können. Eine dieser Strategien ist die Bioökonomie, welche, neben den erhofften Umwelteffekten auch Innovation und Wachstum bringen soll. Auch in Deutschland rückt die Bioökonomie zunehmend in den Mittelpunkt der Debatte um nachhaltige Produktion und Konsum. Trotzdem spielen bio-basierte Produkte und Dienstleistungen nach wie vor nur eine geringe Rolle. Der Anteil an, in der Bioökonomie Beschäftigten in Deutschland, lag 2015 bei rund 7% und der an der Wertschöpfung bei rund 5% - je nach Berechnungsmethode. Der Bausektor spielt in diesem Zusammenhang eine gewichtige Rolle hinsichtlich seiner Energie- und Emissionsintensität. Das Einsparungspotenzial ist hier besonders hoch. Außerdem akkumulieren sozioökonomische Systeme große Mengen an Infrastruktur (Gebäudebestand), welche letztlich ein Sammelsurium aus Materialen darstellt, was (wieder)verwendet werden kann, wenn die Voraussetzungen dafür geschaffen sind. Welche Lösungen braucht es also um den Anteil bio-basierte und zirkulärer Produkte im Bausektor in Deutschland und in Europa zu erhöhen? Welche Stoffe und Materialeigenschaften sind notwendig um konventionelle, klimaintensive Baustoffe zu ersetzen? Welche Innovationen können entwickelt werden und welche Forschungs- und Kommunikationsstrategien sind dafür zielführend? Welche Rolle spielt die Architektur im Wandel hin zu einer nachhaltigen Bau- und Lebensweise? Und welche Rahmenbedingungen braucht es seitens des Bundes um diese zu stärken? Der vom ICLEI Europasekretariat organisierte Workshop richtet sich an Akteure aus Wirtschaft, Politik, Wissenschaft und Zivilgesellschaft mit dem Ziel, multi-perspektivische Lösungsansätze, (Projekt)Ideen und Politikempfehlungen zu den genannten Herausforderungen zu diskutieren und ganz allgemein, das Bewusstsein für die Wichtigkeit des Themas Architektur in der Nachhaltigkeitsdebatte zu stärken. Im Besonderen, wird sich der Workshop mit der Rolle zirkulärer und bio-basierter Produkte im Bausektor in Deutschland befassen, Potenzial identifizieren und gute Beispiele benennen.

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.
