Workshop on Innovation and Circular Economy in Mountain Forest Supply Chains: How to Close the Loop?

On November 29th, 2016, Euromontana, in collaboration with member organization PINS, is organizing a workshop on the circular economy in forestry in Skrad, Croatia. If you are interested in attending, please register at this link. The workshop is co-hosted by Croatian MEP, Jozo RADOŠ.

Workshop background:

The circular economy is based on “sharing, leasing, reuse, repair, refurbishment and recycling” of products and materials in an ideally closed loop. The goal of the circular economy is to reduce waste by keeping products and materials within the economy. As pressure on resources increases and availability decreases, there will be continued demand for sustainable systems that reduce waste and promote recycling. This workshop asks: how might the circular economy be applied in the mountain forest supply chain?

The workshop will present visions and possibilities for a circular economy in the forest supply chain and innovative initiatives that promote the circular economy in forestry. Mountain forests face specific natural conditions, such as slope, climate, and soil types, that make the exploitation of mountain resources unique. A circular economy in the forest supply chain will have to consider these constraints and develop unique ways to address them.

The workshop thus has four objectives:

  1. To better understand the European Union national and regional policies and programs supporting the circular economy in forestry.
  2. To explore visions for a circular economy in the mountain forest supply chain– what does a circular economy in the forest supply chain look like, how will we achieve it?
  3. From theory to the practice: to explore innovative tools, instruments and processes that can improve the circular economy in forestry.
  4. To facilitate the exchange of experiences and good practices, ideas and proposals among the different mountain forest actors in Europe.
