2. Society: Social organisation and risk management in a circular bio-based society
A circular society entails major social changes. Within this theme we want to address changes expected and/or needed by citizen, consumers and households. The theme will address topics like behavioural change, new forms of social organisation such as platforms and cooperatives, and new forms of spatial organisation.
Within this theme we seek for sessions and masterclasses on questions like: How do we ensure that these changes happen in a socially responsible manner? How do we guarantee inclusivity and prevent exclusion of groups. What new behavior is needed to make that the transition to a circular society also ensures climate restoration? What is the potential of circular human diets. How to best utilize and recycle biomass and bio-products for different purposes without introducing (new) risks to human health and how to assess and measure and manage food safety risks in a circular production system?
