I hope I find you well. Let me start by thanking you for becoming a member of the Forum for Sustainability through Life Cycle Innovation (FSLCI)! We really look forward to promote Life Cycle Thinking globally together with you!
Today we’re happy to provide you with the first-ever newsletter for FSLCI members and we have some exciting news to share with you!

Invite Friends Programme As you might have seen, we’ve recently launched the ‘Invite Friends Programme’, which you find on our Website under the ‘Members Area’ menu. It allows you to send a personalized link to your friends and colleagues to invite them to join the FSLCI and become part of our community. Successful sign-ups will automatically be tracked and we will organize a special surprise for the member who has recruited most new members up to our next General Assembly in September. Only if we as a community grow we will be able to achieve our joint vision and mission. Help us now and become a star promoter of your community! Become engaged in the Organising Committee
We’ve recently updated our website and introduced a section on our own governance structure. To this end you will notice that we plan on engaging with you in Committees around specific topics in going forward.
These Committees will be set up after our new Board of Directors has been officially voted into office. However, in order to allow you to become engaged already before that, we would like to invite you to join our Organizing Committee. Hence, if you like to become more engaged and help us shape the FSLCI, simply send us an email to [email protected]!
