Since the first summit in Berlin in 2015, the summits have established themselves as a unique format for global exchange on bioeconomy policy, governance and sustainable development.
This year, the Third Global Bioeconomy Summit (GBS2020) will take place in the Berlin Congress Center (BCC) from November 19 to 20, with the support of the German government.
The Summit’s vision is to contribute to a future where the bioeconomy benefits society and the environment through sustainable solutions (Agenda 2030).
The mission of the Global Bioeconomy Summit is to provide thought leadership in effectively shaping global bioeconomy policy and sharing the global responsibility to contributing to sustainable development. The GBS therefore evolves as THE platform connecting informed opinion leaders and trusted sources in the diverse fields of bioeconomy science, industry, policy and sustainable development.
The Global Bioeconomy Summit 2020 provides a neutral place to promote consensus building on how different pathways of bioeconomy will contribute to sustainable development. The development of a sustainable bioeconomy requires policy strategies supporting the transformation of the current economic system. These strategies involve research and technological innovation but also social innovation, regulatory changes, national and international policy frameworks and long-term political commitment. The GBS has the mission to stimulate and support these transformation processes globally.
