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 will contribute 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 will analyse 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. The seating capacity is limited and interested participants are advised to register as soon as possible.

Eindhoven, woensdag 23 oktober van 14.00 tot 15.30 theater Brabant Living Lab bij Strijp-S op het Ketelplein Benieuwd naar nieuwe natuurlijke bouwmaterialen zoals biologisch versterkt hout en isolatieblokken van hennep? Wil je weten hoe je kunt bouwen met de schimmel mycelium? Tijdens deze workshop maak je kennis met het nieuwe biobased bouwen. Je gaat in gesprek met de ondernemers die deze producten ontwikkelen en aan de man brengen. Tegen welke uitdagingen lopen zij aan? Het besef groeit dat verduurzaming van de bouw nodig is. Echter, in de bouwmarkt is het gangpad biobased bouwmaterialen nog niet te vinden. Ondanks deze afwezigheid brengen ondernemers nieuwe biobased bouw materialen op de markt. Het marktaandeel van deze producten moeten wel groeien. Bij wie ligt de bal voor de opschaling? Bij de projectontwikkelaar, de aannemer of de particuliere klusser? En welke hindernissen moeten we nemen? Heb jij ideeën over het aanjagen en versnellen van de transitie naar biobased bouw? Kom dan op woensdag 23 oktober van 14.00 tot 15.30 naar Theater Brabant Living Lab bij Strijp-S op het Ketelplein. Wageningen University and Research organiseert dit event met medewerking van Klaas Jan Swager en Maike Wevers van Foreco. Makers van Nobelwood & Faunawood, John van de Wetering van Isohemp en Emiel Rietvelt (ST. Nieuwe Helden) over Mycelium. Dit event is gratis toegankelijk (geen DDW kaart nodig).

BIOVOICES is organising a panel discussion about waste management and reduction, during which a regional Mobilisation and Mutual Learning (MML) Workshop will be held, which focuses on plastics in everyday life and aims to facilitate the switch to bio-based. The panel discussion will cover every corner of the waste management today and its future directions. The panel speakers are: • A representative of the policy sector – the “voice“ of the policy makers, bringing the government’s viewpoint and responsibilities, discussing about legislations and directions for the future; • Leader of the local apartment cooperative - representing the „voice“ of the public; speaking about the pros and cons of circular waste management system, and its feasibility at apartments. • Representative of business sector – representing the “voice” of the business sector, a private entrepreneur, who promotes the growth of the circular economy. • Representative of the research and business sector – a material scientist and CEO of waste management company, who believes in circular economy and values a sustainable lifestyle. Civil Society is invited to discuss together with the speakers about the waste management today and in the future. The discussion will continue in the MML workshop, where through a competition the participants gain knowledge about different kinds of plastics and will be introduced to environment-friendly alternatives. The interactive hands-on workshop will focus on the following topics: • What are the positive and negative connotations about bio-based plastic bags and disposable tableware? Which plastic alternatives are best to use? • Do the bio-based and other environmentally friendly plastics have the same features as the regular ones? • How to decrease the use of disposable plastic tableware? What are successful awareness raising concepts/strategies and best alternatives/ideas how to reduce plastic tableware? All attendees are introduced to an Expo area, which demonstrates great environmentally-friendly plastic alternatives, and most active participants will win those as a prize!

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. Welche Lösungen braucht es also um den Anteil bio-basierte und zirkulärer Produkte in Deutschland und in Europa zu erhöhen? Welche Produkte und Produkteigenschaften wollen die Verbraucher? Welche Innovationen können entwickelt werden und welche Forschungs- und Kommunikationsstrategien sind dafür zielführend? Welche Rolle spielen dabei lokale Wertschöpfungsketten und lokale Märkte? Und welche Rahmenbedingungen braucht es seitens des Bundes um diese zu stärken? Der vom ICLEI Europasekretariat (Partner im BIOVOICES Projekt) und der Stadt Sigmaringen (Koordinator AlpBioEco Projekt) co-organisierte Workshop richtete 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. Im Besonderen, diente der Workshop dazu einen Austausch zu guten Beispielen hinsichtlich der Schaffung neuer Wertschöpfungsketten, etwa aus Biomüll, Gartenabfällen, Ernterückständen,maritimen Materialen und/oder Insektenprotein (inklusive Ausstellung einschlägiger Produkte) – auch durch grüne und innovative öffentliche Beschaffungsinitiativen, ermöglichen sowie wesentliche Elemente eines veränderten regulativen Rahmens zur Förderung solcher Wertschöpfungsketten – von der Rohstoffproduktion-/beschaffung über Zertifizierung bis hin zum Verkauf zu identifizieren. Als Teil des Workshops fand auch eine Produktschau statt. Interessierte Aussteller biobasierter Produkte und Servies hatten hier die Gelegneheit ihre Produkte zu präsentieren, zu diskutieren und sich auszutauschen.
