A look back at LCIC 2022
Following our last two conferences in 2018 and 2020, we hosted LCIC 2022 from June 29 – July 1. The conference was organized for the first time as a truly hybrid conference which enabled virtual participants not only to follow a diverse program, but also to contribute to it through live-streamed interventions.
Much like in the previous years, one key objective of our conference was to create a unique space to think in creative and new ways about how to foster sustainability efforts around the world and link it to innovation processes. During LCIC 2022 we sought to promote a better world by taking a systems perspective to foster sustainable innovation. Hence a diverse program with 18 sessions, 10 workshops and 13 barcamps offered a great opportunity to present and discuss innovative approaches and methods to address sustainability challenges, but also showcase innovative products and services that will help us transition towards a more sustainable world.
In addition to the various sessions, workshops and barcamps we set a focus theme per day to highlight challenges and opportunities, for example around how to decarbonize various industry sectors (see our panel), how to link digitalization and how to implement a circular economy (see our keynote speakers).
Much like with the previous iterations we managed to bring together a truly diverse crowd of change-makers, innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers, practitioners and decision-makers who share our passion for sustainability – physically and virtually! While the interactive program elements such as our workshops and barcamps were not recorded, we will soon make recordings of all 18 sessions as well as the keynotes and the panel available.
In the meantime feel free to check out some impressions from our physical conference in the gallery below!
“Apart from the sessions, I very much enjoyed the workshop sessions and the barcamps (…) I took away a lot from the conference, both on the personal and on the professional level. Thanks & congratulations to the organizers for this successful conference – I am looking forward to the next LCIC conference and to meeting all of you at other conferences in the future.”
“Congrats! It was an inspiring conference with great presentations. Even though participating virtually only this time, I could sense the momentum, the creativity and enthusiasm that made the event a success!”
“The community feel at #LCIC2022 is a special thing, and I feel grateful to have been a part of it. I’Il be leaving Berlin with a big list of topics to deep dive into and some wonderful connections. Thanks Forum for Sustainability through Life Cycle Innovation e.V. – FSLCI!”
“Barcamp was a really smart format of fast knowledge exchange and effective networking. Indeed, LCIC 2022 was a spotless conference. I learned a lot!”
“I’m just back from perhaps one of the most educational and inspiring conferences I’ve been to. Thank you (…) for putting together an excellent and super relevant agenda showing the links between lifecycle assessment and net zero, digitization and circular economy. Super thanks to all the attendees for the extremely open and inciteful discussions.”
