BONUS RETURN annual meeting and regional learning event in Helsinki

PhD-candidate Solveig Johannesdottir and researcher Jennifer McConville participated in the annual BONUS RETURN meeting in Helsinki 28th-29th of May. The internal meeting was followed by a regional learning event on the 30th, where external partners were invited to participate. The learning event started with an introduction to the RETURN project, followed by presentations and panel discussion by fours key-note speakers: Akko Karlsson (Kalmar Regional Council), Marcus Svedberg (Senior advisor, Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre), Eija Hagelberg (Project Director, JÄRKI project, Baltic Sea Action Group) and Marc Klaus (Director, Race For The Baltic). The panel discussion was on the topic “How can we enable circular innovations to trigger sustainable transformations in the Baltic Sea Region?” During the afternoon, the participants were engaged in smaller group discussions around topics such as risks and reward of circularity, social dimensions of circular economy, the role of entrepreneurship in the shift towards circular economy and creating a “community of practice” for circular solutions.
