Organized by the Baltic University Programme (BUP) and Euroakadeemia.
The Baltic University Programme and Euroakadeemia, can proudly present the BUP’s annual student conference 2019, on the topic of sustainable consumption and circular economy in the Baltic Sea region. A conference for students studying at undergraduate and graduate level in the Baltic Sea region.
How do we reach a sustainable consumption that stays within the ecological boundaries of our planet? Is turning our linear system thinking into a circular one going to solve the problems?
During a four days conference in the rural town of Aegviidu in northern Estonian, the BUP will host an international student conference, with expert speakers from both academia and society. The conference will deepen the participants’ knowledge in what is required to reach the sustainable development goal number 12 (Sustainable production and consumption), by approaching the problem from a circular economic approach. We will learn and discuss the possibilities to close material loops with the help of both technological and societal solutions, while discovering new aspects of sustainability in our region.
A number of invited experts from Lund University, Riga Technical University, SITRA (the Finnish Innovation Fund) and others, will provide lectures and workshops, from which participants can build a solid basis of knowledge.
