Conference “Implementing the Circular Bioeconomy at the Local Level”

The PRO CIVIS Foundation invites to the Polish-Norwegian conference “Implementing the Circular Bioeconomy at the Local Level”, which will be held on May 15, 2024 at the Regional Science and Technology Center (RCNT) in Podzamcze Chęcińskie, near Kielce.

The aim of the Conference is to prepare regional and local authorities for new challenges related to the bioeconomy and optimization of the economic use of biomass as one of the most important natural resources. The conference will present the most important achievements of the Polish-Norwegian BioGoLocal project, implemented by the consortium of the PRO CIVIS Foundation from Kielce and Ressurs & Miljø AS from Oslo. Conference participants will get especially the information about:

  • subjective and functional conditions that should ultimately exist within a given region, county, commune – which want to shape their economic, environmental and social development based on the concept of circular bioeconomy;
  • good Norwegian practices in the implementation and development of regional and local circular bioeconomies, including issues such as proper identification of biological resources, support for strategic initiatives and planning, as well as creating foundations and conditions for innovative activities;
  • strategic plans related to the circular bioeconomy, including the Poland’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan and other national and regional programs.

The conference will be conducted in a hybrid system, through the personal participation of participants at RCNT facilities.

All conference participants present in person will receive an expert report developed as part of the project, entitled: “BioGoLocal – implementation of the Circular Bioeconomy at the local level”, as well as a monograph published by the PRO CIVIS Foundation and the Warsaw University of Life Sciences, entitled: “Fertilizers from waste as a source of nutrients for fertilizing crops. Agricultural use of waste and by-products as a link in the circular economy.” People participating online will receive the report in PDF form, leaflet on composting also in PDF form and the monograph on fertilizers will be sent by post until stocks last, in the order of conference registrations.
