Collaborate, Innovate, Co-Create

LCIC 2022 is a unique and highly diverse conference. During the conference we will not only cover a broad range of topics, but also engage in various conference formats. During each day, we will put a special spotlight with our keynotes and panel discussions on one of our three themes:

  • Applying Systems Thinking to guide the transition towards a regenerative Circular Economy
  • Supporting the journey towards net zero and beyond with Life Cycle Approaches
  • Implementing Sustainable Innovation through Digitalization

However, the conference will discuss a broader range of sustainability topics, as highlighted by the various sessions and workshops outlined below.

Please note:  All sessions, keynote & panels will be recorded and are accessible for conference participants shortly after the end of the recording of each session and will remain accessible after the conference for conference participants. Workshops & Barcamps will not be recorded!

Additional workshops will be announced shortly

We will build this part of the program “on the fly” during LCIC 2022.

You can propose a topic for a group discussion at the start of the conference. We will then let conference participants vote on the proposals and the ones with the most votes get a discussion slot assigned 🙂

No abstract required, just a convincing quick pitch 🙂
