World BioEconomy Forum goes for 2021

The World BioEconomy Forum is a think-tank initiative which provides a global platform for key stakeholders of the Circular Bioeconomy to share ideas and promote bio-based solutions. The Forum’s fundamental purpose is to encourage the replacement of non-renewable based industries, products and services to facilitate a more sustainable economy while mitigating climate change. The 2021 season will provide several new features and opportunities to get engaged with the Forum and its many members and followers.

Forum 2020

The 3rd World BioEconomy Forum went virtual – live from Ruka!

A jumpstart for the new season

The program consisted of four sessions broadcast on 10th September 2020, and was eight hours in length.  The day was arranged with convenient breaks where the studio team discussed some of the important topics on the program. The basic idea of the event was to feature hard talk in a relaxed environment and with easy access – and we are pleased to say that all these goals were successfully met. The Forum was joined by 400+ delegates from 51 different countries representing 150 organisations. The feedback from the event was very positive with 85% of the followers rating the Forum 2020 at 4 or above out of 5.
