Contribute now to the Jim Fava Life Cycle Summer School Fund!
The Jim Fava Life Cycle Summer School Fund supports young researchers from developing and emerging economies to be able to participate in the annual Life Cycle Summer School organized by the Forum for Sustainability through Life Cycle Innovation e.V.
The annual Life Cycle Summer School brings together between 20-30 participants from all over the world each year to focus on applying life cycle thinking to a specific topic related to regional sustainable development. The Summer School is hosted in different locations in Europe each year and organized in collaboration with local partners who provide their expertise. The Summer School is organized on a not-for-profit basis by the FSLCI’s Summer School Working Group, yet requires a participation fee in order to be organized.
Jim Fava is known in the life cycle community as the “father of LCA” and after 45 years of working to promote Life Cycle Thinking around the world, he will officially retire at the end of 2022. As the co-founder of the FSLCI he has had an immense impact on creating and establishing the FSLCI over the last few years, initially in his role as the Chair of the Executive Committee and then as a highly active member of our community.
In recognition of his outstanding career, we invite you to contribute to a funding campaign aimed at creating a fund that can be used to support students from developing and emerging economies to participate in our Summer School. Throughout his career Jim has always supported younger generations and thus we invite you to support our campaign in his name!
