Student bioeconomy perceptions survey

Bioeconomy perceptions

Society’s views on how to take action to mitigate and adapt to climate change are essential in shaping a sustainable, carbon-neutral economy.

Involving university students in co-creating and implementing bioeconomy policies and initiatives is necessary—they are the future workforce who will move forward in the bioeconomy.

To identify the current state of students’ perceptions, the Bioregions Facility conducted a bioeconomy survey targeting university students in Europe.

Considering the perspectives of these future decision-makers on issues that directly impact their well-being can help create a more effective bioeconomy route for governments and corporations.

The Bioregions Facility seeks to support regional-level policymakers to take advantage of robust regional policy tools and global best practices, create mutually beneficial partnerships with the private sector, and deeply understand the unique regional challenges and supporting conditions for the bioeconomy.
