INFO

City of Kemi - The Arctic Bio Capital – attaches great importance to the development of the bio- and the circular economy, as well as in wood building construction. In cooperation with SITRA and the Ministry of the Environment, this international forum featured with Arctic wood building and circular economy is going to be held during May 23-24, 2018 in Kemi, Finland.

This ground-breaking event will present the latest development trends in industrial circular economy and the associated significant potential to use wood as future primary material in building and architecture design. The innovative use of wood and its role in the industrial circular economy offers us new insight and opportunity to prevent further deterioration of global warming and eventually realize the goal of sustainable development.

The event will gather together the most influential experts, pioneers and policy makers in the field to share their ideas on wood building and circular economy in Finland and other Nordic countries. Representatives from eco-industrial parks and enterprises will also give speeches covering topics such as the current development situation, demands, challenges and opportunities in Arctic wood industry and circular economy.
