future is made in finland

Webinar series: Future is Made in Finland!
Episode II: Bioeconomy Defines the Future
October 26, 2020 at 5 pm Bangkok time

Every day we get food, pharmaceuticals, construction materials and recreation from the nature, the ecosystem, around us. But do we understand the fundamentals of ecosystem services – services, which the Mother Nature provides us? How efficiently do we utilize these services, and how sustainable are our actions?

We need to harness, but also to preserve.

In the Episode II of this webinar series we will have a closer look at bioeconomy, forest and water ecosystems: how to unlock the yet unharnessed value of their biomass in a sustainable, future-proof way? We will dive into new ideas for creating value from forest and algae biomass to support the emerging bioeconomy. One day, it might be the cultivation of algae that enables space colonization for humankind. How could that happen?

Tune in and find out more of cutting-edge research in bioeconomy, and the study, work and research opportunities in Finland in this domain. The episode is facilitated by the LUT University and features experts and representatives from the University of Helsinki and bioeconomy-related companies.

Meet The Executive from Maptaphut Technical College to share and exchange the innovative teaching and learning management in The New Normal through project based learning + STEM education under the process of design thinking via FabLab, enabling students to create careers or their own start up projects in the future.
