Event Details

The Summer School

The summer school will be organized under the theme “Bio-economy and the food life cycle – A life cycle management toolbox for sustainable regional food and biomass” from 21 September to 8 October 2020. Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, LCSS 2020 will take place this year as a virtual summer school!

This Summer School is an opportunity for professionals and regional managers to learn how to extend evolving life cycle management tools into new application areas in sustainable development – in this instance in the context of developing a deeper understanding of the bio-economy and food life cycle related issues. The objective is to encourage use of promising LCM tools by stakeholders who have not so far employed these techniques extensively. This includes regional institutions, research teams and industrial associations that wish to enhance the effectiveness of their sustainability initiatives. LCSS 2020 is also aimed at life cycle professionals and academics interested in broadening their client base by offering new applications.

This Summer School – the 9th in the current series – addresses the growing interest in the sustainability issues associated with food consumption and production as a means of promoting regional sustainable development. In particular, it examines the influential role of life cycle methodologies in ensuring the sustainability of bio-economy initiatives and projects that seek to enhance the sustainability of the food sector. The summer school draws inspiration from the book “Life cycle approaches to sustainable regional development (Routledge, 2017)”. A number of the summer school faculty are authors of important chapters in this publication.

The summer school uses an interactive program of lectures, workshops, cases studies and role-plays to explore key issues around the bio-economy and life cycle tools. More information on the Summer School is available here.
