KOLI FORUM 2013
FORESTS AND WATER - The Key Resources for Sustainable and Competitive Bioeconomy. 17.-19.9.2013

Latest news

Speakers 2013

DISCUSSION FORUM FOR GLOBAL LEADERS - Koli Forum, specializing in bioeconomy and forest resources, is a platform for global leaders to identify, analyse and disseminate policy and leadership strategies that make the most of natural resources and innovation capacity. The aim is to turn current challenges into growth opportunities in the field of bioeconomy.

New theses

The participants at the third Koli Forum agreed that consumer behaviour is the driving force for sustainable business growth. The Forum also addressed the scarcity of natural resources, especially the fact that a lack of water will increase tensions globally in the future if urgent actions are not taken.

The foundation for the Koli Forum will be strengthened in the future. The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra will help organize the Koli Forum in 2015 and in 2017 together with the University of Eastern Finland, the Regional Council of North Karelia and many others.

 

 

 

 

”For the modern, bio-economy oriented society, the development of forest industry built on renewable forest resources is assuming an increasingly important role. This calls for comprehensive international dialogue to identify common values and goals, and the Koli Forum provides an excellent platform for this discussion.”

Kari Jordan, President and CEO of the Metsäliitto Group, Chairman of the Board of Finnish Forest Industries Federation
