The Nordic bioeconomy is about a green transition. It is about the replacement of unsustainable and fossil-based resources, through the upgrading of side streams and waste, and by creating circular and sustainable local solutions. Here we summarize the activities of the Nordic Council of Ministers towards a sustainable change.
This is a conference on bioeconomy, sustainability and the outcome of the Nordic Bioeconomy Initiative (NordBio). NordBio is a three-year program, launched by the Icelandic chairmanship of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2014. Within this program Nordic experts are pooling their efforts to promote sustainable use of living natural resources, taking into account and integrating social and environmental aspects. The aim of the whole program is to facilitate the development of a competitive economy based on living resources and to introduce new and innovative methods in youth education. October 2016 will be a perfect time to present the outcomes, to discuss the opportunities ahead and to sow new seeds for the future.
