What do we mean by resilient Arctic bioeconomy? How can we develop sustainable and responsible bioeconomy by working together with the various stakeholders in the Arctic?

The Arctic region possesses a wide variety of renewable natural resources: forest, water, fish and game. The aim of this session is to discuss different approaches to sustainable bioeconomy, ranging from researchers to local practitioners and global decision-makers. 

The session will bring together diverse aspects of the bioeconomy and how to strengthen resilience in the Arctic region. Other challenges posed by the rapid climate change conditions will also be addressed. Is sustainable bioeconomy the key to resilient communities and livelihoods?

The session is part of the Rovaniemi Arctic Spirit event that will take place in Rovaniemi 14-16 November 2017. The session is organised by the Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and will take place at Kero, Lappia Hall in the city of Rovaniemi. Read more about the event and register here.
