In August a new organisation is formed to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable biobased economy: The Federation Bio-economy Netherlands. More than 100 organisations and persons in the Dutch biobased realm have become member in order to bundle forces in order to have more cross collaboration, to prevent double-work and to do more promotion towards private and public organisations to go biobased.

An important feature of the FBN is that youngsters are actively engaged. They are the future generation that can already contribute to the transition and are eager to learn the current leaders in industry, policy and science that strive for a more sustainable economy build on renewable resources from agriculture.

On 21 and 23 November two events are hosted to ask students how they view a sustainable bioeconomy in 2030 and 2050. The goal of these events is that youngsters build an image how such an economic system would look like: Bio-vision FBN
