A lot has happened in the regional BLOOM bioeconomy hubs since spring and the co-creation processes are almost finished. The hubs have brought together a broad range of stakeholders from civil society, business, academia and industry in order to share their opinions and experiences of the bioeconomy and collaboratively create ideas on how the topic can be communicated to different target groups.
The last quarter of this year will be characterized by the kick-off of the hubs’ outreach phase in which all the specially designed and adapted activities will be implemented. So stay tuned for exciting activities and keep in touch with your local hub! For upcoming events, check the agenda in the newsletter on page 14.
Between 25th March and 30th April 2019, the participants of the “Boosting Bioeconomy Knowledge in Schools” Massive Open Online Course were invited to submit their learning scenarios to the BLOOM “Teach bioeconomy!” competition. As a result of this competition hosted by BLOOM and supported by Scientix, the community of science education in Europe, six submissions were selected by the competition jury to be published as part of the BLOOM School Box and are now available on our website!
We are continuously developing information and outreach materials on bioeconomy and on the approach of the BLOOM project. In this newsletter you will find more information on the BLOOM School Box, a co-creation guidebook on the methodologies used by the hubs and a podcast with an interview with bioeconomy expert Dr. Hannu Koponen.
