Global Bioeconomy Summit 23-24 October 2024


The GBS is a forum that fosters dialogue between widely different actors to promote sharing of best practices and to identify opportunities for global innovation and collaboration. The GBS series was started in 2015 and it is devised to be a global and inclusive summit. It brings together bioeconomy experts from all hemispheres and from diverse backgrounds to represent the interdisciplinary and diverse features of the bioeconomy. The overall aims of the GBSs are to:

  • provide a platform to discuss global bioeconomy issues in an inclusive manner
  • foster communication and understanding of global bioeconomy
  • integrate bioeconomy issues in global discussions on innovation, climate, biodiversity and achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • provide guidelines and recommendations for the way forward

The planning of the GBS is supported by the International Advisory Council on Global Bioeconomy (IACGB), an independent think tank with the mission to promote the Global Bioeconomy as a sustainable and future looking movement for the benefit of planet and people.

GBS will take place in Nairobi, Kenya and may also be attended online.
