We hope we find you well and wish you a happy new year! As outlined in our last newsletter, this year we will focus not only on growing the FSLCI, its membership and visibility, but more importantly we seek to engage with you more directly.
To achieve this, we’ve revised the way our website works. With our new Activity Home, we hope to make it a place for you to engage with one another, share information and get the latest updates from us. We’re also launching an official Call for Project Proposals, as we hope that the FSLCI becomes a place where you can not only engage with one another, but use it to work on project ideas which you would like to implement.
Read on, to also learn about new partnerships, upcoming deadlines and job openings. We look forward to making 2016 a great year for the Life Cycle Community together with you!
Jim, Guido and Philip
Today, we’re proud to inform you that we’ve completely rethought the way that we would like you to interact with us and our content! Instead of having you navigate through our content in different sections and parts of our website, we’ve made an effort to aggregate all relevant information for you in one streamlined and easily accessible interface: The all new Activity Home! It encompasses all relevant news, the latest job postings, upcoming events as well as all important deadlines in one easy interface. Log-in now and check out what has changed or watch the video below: Short overview of the new Activity Home. We hope you like the new Activity Home as much as we do. We also look forward for you to use the website to interact more directly with us. To make things even easier for you, we’re offering two half hour webinars (22th & 27th of January @ 2pm) to walk you through the website and show you its capabilities. To participate, please register via the button below: Register for Webinar As a community and member-based organization, one of our key objectives is to provide a platform for you, our members, to engage with one another. In addition, we seek to become a platform where you can develop and realize new project ideas. To this end, today we’re introducing a new mechanism which gives you the opportunity to propose your project ideas and implement them as an official FSLCI project.
You can read more about the process here to learn more about what we expect and how we envision the process to be organized. We invite you all to propose Project Proposals, which you would like to see being implemented.
The deadline for the first round of project proposals is the 15th of February. We encourage you however to submit your proposals as soon as possible in order to allow for other members to join in and review and discuss your project proposal.
Submit your Project Proposal We are happy to inform you that we’re supporting the upcoming World Resources Forum Latin America & the Caribbean and the International Sustainable Building Congress 2016, which is going to be organized from the 17th – 20th of May 2016 in San José in Costa Rica. The event is being hosted by the Green Building Council of Costa Rica (GBCCR) and co-organized by the WRF and the UNEP IRP. The event will focus especially on issues around resource efficiency and sustainable lifestyles, however we are working with the organizers to also ensure the life cycle thinking will be a visible concept during the conference. To this end we would like to invite you to submit papers. The deadline for the Call for Papers is the 3rd of February. To learn more about the conference, please visit the conference website. Submit your Paper We are happy to inform you that we have recently signed a strategic partnership agreement with the Life Cycle Association of New Zealand (LCANZ). LCANZ’s mission is to provide a focal point for Life Cycle Assessment and Management work conducted in New Zealand. It’s their aim to promote networking and knowledge sharing between organisations and people. Promoting and raising the awareness of Life Cycle Thinking amongst the wider public and business is another key goal of LCANZ.
