Register for the World BioEconomy Forum 2021

World BioEconomy Forum goes to Brazil – live from Belém!

18–20 October 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. One of these new services includes World BioEconomy News, a service which includes a monthly email with the top stories in the circular bioeconomy for the month, as well as daily updates on our website.

World BioEconomy Forum goes to Brazil – live from Belém!

Live from Belém 18–20 October 2021

There is no one fit all bioeconomy but several bioeconomies based on their own strengths. That is one of the key reasons we will be heading to Brazil for the World BioEconomy Forum 2021. The Forum will be held in Belém, which is the capital of the state of Pará. The location is in at the mouth of the Amazon River – again at the heart of a particularly important ecosystem. The World BioEconomy Forum would like to present Belém and the state of Pará as a real hot spot of the Circular Bioeconomy in 2021 and share its narrative with the global Circular Bioeconomy society. Walking the talk – we can learn from Brazil and the Amazon region at the same time as sharing our lessons from the other parts of the world. 

The Forum is co-hosted by the state of Pará with partners the Brazilian Agribusiness Association (ABAG) and The Brazilian Tree Industry (Ibá). Together we will offer an event that you cannot miss.
