A sustainable bioeconomy will be an important building block for the sustainable transformation of our society. However, the road to real sustainability is still long: visions and visionaries are needed. By developing socially acceptable guidelines, this project aims to provide an impetus for the design of a sustainable bioeconomy in Germany, led by NABU.
For this purpose, we will identify region-specific bioeconomy approaches from Germany and Europe that make an important contribution to environmental and nature conservation. Transdisciplinary workshops with other relevant stakeholders are a vital part of the process. With the help of interviews we want to lay bare pioneering bioeconomy visions which will finally be presented in a graphically appealing idea booklet.
With the help of the transdisciplinary project approach (participatory technology assessment), which facilitates the exchange between practitioners and other stakeholders (such as politics, business, science), conflict potentials, hurdles as well as systemic risks of bioeconomic applications are identified. Finally, political recommendations for action show how the bioeconomy can contribute to the socio-ecological transformation and which framework conditions are necessary for this.
