Workshop “International policy instruments and governance of the bioeconomy and circular economy” at the Global Bioeconomy Summit 2020
GWS will co-organize a workshop at the Global Bioeconomy Summit 2020 on “International policy instruments and governance of the bioeconomy and circular economy”.
The online workshop will take place on Nov 18th 2020, from 4 pm to 6 pm CET.
This workshop focuses on identifying bio- and circular economy governance gaps at various scales of governance, including the international level, and discusses potential tools and approaches to address these gaps. Specifically, the workshop is organized around the following three thematic threads:
1.) Clarifying the governance concept – what needs to be governed in bio-/circular economy and towards which outcomes?
2.) What are the governance needs/gaps at local, national, and international scale?
3.) What tools and actions are needed to address governance needs/gaps especially at the international level?
The workshop builds on experiences in the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) financed projects SYMOBIO and BEST.
