Today we are excited to let you know that our Life Cycle Summer School will be organized again in 2022. This year’s edition will focus on the theme “Life cycle approaches for the implementation of regional climate and circularity objectives”. The Summer School will be organized from 25. – 28. August 2022 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
This Summer School is an opportunity for professionals and regional managers to learn how to extend evolving life cycle management tools into new application areas in sustainable development – in this instance in the context of developing a deeper understanding how life cycle methodologies can contribute to the implementation of regional climate and circularity objectives.
The objective is to encourage use of promising LCM tools by stakeholders who have not so far employed these techniques extensively. This includes regional institutions, research teams and industrial associations that wish to enhance the effectiveness of their sustainability initiatives. LCSS 2022 is also aimed at young life cycle professionals and academics interested in broadening their client base by offering new applications.
Climate change is the single greatest sustainability challenge that we are currently facing and thus needs to be addressed urgently on all levels of society, as recently again highlighted by the 6th Assessment Report of the the IPCC. Regions play a key role in shaping the transition into a carbon neutral world, be it for example through their public purchasing policies, their energy and heating infrastructure or their mobility plans. While managing the transition, taking a life cycle perspective is key and thus during LCSS 2022 we will also look at how a circular economy can be applied to achieve climate goals.
We are now accepting applications for our Life Cycle Summer School and invite you to learn more about our program and apply for it here.Tags: circular economy climate change lca lcss life cycle summer school sdg
