  • Title: Koli Theses 2013 | Koliforum
    Descriptive info: KOLI THESES 2013 – Measures to achieve the targets.. “We shall use the abundant resources wisely and productively, and to identify fully the values of nature and the natural processes to the bio-economy.. ”, Ville Niinistö, Minister for the Environment, Government of Finland.. Koli Forum states that,.. the main driving force for a competitive bioeconomy.. is.. market force.. (57,9 %); but we need also.. government regulations.. and.. international multilateral agreements.. It is time to start taking actions at local level in order to reach global targets (92,7%), even though we have not reached a global agreement.. THESIS 1:.. Prevent crises and conflicts aggravated by climate change, increasing competition and diminishing renewable resources.. 1.. We need resource wisdom.. : more efforts to increase resource efficiency, management of resources and decrease the environmental consequences of use.. Sustainable materials management can help improving competitiveness, contribute to addressing resource security concerns and create growth and jobs, in addition to contributing to environmental protection.. When increasing resource efficiency, savings can be resulted in waste reduction and in better materials management.. Foster investments in best available technology on material, water and energy efficiency, and recycling of nutrients.. For example, pay attention to new investments in the use of renewable resources, pay attention also to SME players besides big enterprises, concentrate on heat-cooling-electricity solutions.. 2.. Visionary countries and companies are needed to lead by example.. Those who see the problem should lead the way.. The financial opportunities are offered by public investments, smart cities and pension funds.. Use these resources to lead the way!.. Involvement of small and medium size companies and innovators is essential.. 3 Prevent the use of non-explored fossil energy resources.. A mechanism to limit the use of so far non explored fossil energy sources needs to be crated.. 4.. Empower consumers.. - Empower consumers à to make resource wise choices.. - Reliable product information.. - Educate to raise public awareness.. The power of consumers should be used wisely.. We should create a mechanism to represent the carbon and water footprint related to individual consumer product.. This would put pressure on carbon efficiency of the production chain.. 5 Develop communication.. - Be open to compromises and avoid extreme approaches in communication.. Journalists rather than experts should be involved.. - Communicate opportunities offered by science and technology and what it means to ordinary people.. To get full advance of new efficient technology education is essential.. - Local communication of the global impacts.. Increasing ecological problems can at worst lead to tense public attitudes, including eco-nationalism.. Emphasis should be put on understandable communication, availability and reliability of information.. - Encouraging examples on success stories.. - Use geographical map information and modern technologies with visual elements in communication.. For reaching awareness on long term basis.. Attention should be paid to ordinary people and people in the developing countries.. Scaling up public information and educational campaigns is critical for raising household awareness, changing perceptions, and thus ultimately behaviour.. 6 Prevent crises.. Planning ahead, taking actions now to tackle the resource challenges and mitigate future risks would be fundamentally important.. We need to build capacity to better understand and prepare for future risks.. The economic and social costs of not managing security risks can be very high, effects of droughts and floods being a good example all around the world.. - Use UN peacekeeping forces to prevent crises to escalate conflicts and to help in case of natural disasters.. - Establish transnational facilities for coordinating efforts for risk planning and crises management.. - Identify scarcity of natural resources as a primary cause or secondary driver of conflicts.. - Create fast and effective tools to avoid crises to escalate violent conflicts.. - Exchange information on lessons learned.. - Concentrate on finding regional solutions besides national action, also in coping with disasters.. “.. Planning ahead is crucial for mitigating future risks.. There is a growing concern, for example, that the world lacks the capacity to adequately respond to emerging water security risks.. We need to ensure more proactive, rather than reactive, approaches to better manage future risks.. ”, Rintaro Tamaki, Deputy Secretary-General, OECD.. THESIS 2:.. The demand for bio-based products is increasing.. People’s environmental concerns and climate change as well as the growing scarcity and increase in the prices of non-renewable raw materials is boosting the demand for bio-based products and services.. Consumer behaviour is the driver for sustainable business growth.. -.. Branding and designing bio-based products.. - Bio-based products need to have extra benefits for consumers.. - Changing consumer behaviour in favour of bio-based products.. · Education and training.. · Empowering consumers by providing  ...   huge.. 5.. Financing pilot projects and demonstrations.. Bold experiments and cross-sectoral cooperation are key issues for new bio-based, start-up businesses.. The symbioses between global companies and SMEs will help create new businesses specializing in waste and industrial side-streams.. Public procurement can provide a platform for new business opportunities.. The bioeconomy provides large-scale possibilities for sustainable economic growth.. Feasibility of bioeconomy has to be demonstrated.. Public procurement can be used for speeding up sustainable business solutions.. Companies and consumers only adapt to the bioeconomy if it is proven to be profitable.. Currently the world still holds, for example, vast reserves for relatively cheap fossil fuels and in comparison, the production cost of renewable energy is still high.. More emphasis should also be put on looking for simplicity in local solutions (e.. g.. waste management).. 6.. Governance can enhance bioeconomy growth.. - Removing barriers to using waste as a raw material.. - Removing hidden things that support the use of fossil fuels.. We are living in a `carbocentric´ world.. But we forget that fixing carbon by plants requires important amounts of water.. At the same time forests are biotic pumps that impact precipitation patterns at continental level.. Forest, water and carbon related policies should be integrated or will not be successful.. ” Dr.. Marc Palahi, deputy Director, European Forest Institute EFI.. THESIS 3:.. To enhance bioeconomy growth, governance is crucial.. National foresight, vision and strategy processes to form a long-term perspective.. Short term planning is the biggest single challenge for national governments, and companies, on the road to sustainability.. Emphasis should be put on the role of science to better inform decision-makers.. This should include scientific panels in parliaments to look at long-term implications of policies.. Lead discourse on national (and organizational) values is needed– long-term perspective cannot be built on anything else.. Planning ahead to mitigate future risk is key issue in making sure we effectively manage the transition to resource efficiency.. There is a growing concern, for example, that t he world lacks the capacity to adequately respond to emerging water security risks.. To prepare for this we need to build capacity now.. Water security is about establishing an acceptable level of water risk by weighing the costs of improving water security against the expected benefits, and ensuring that responses are proportional to the magnitude of the risk.. ”, Dr Rintaro Tamaki, Deputy Secretary General, OECD.. Cross-sectoral governance and approach in strategy work, planning and decision making.. Our hierarchical, silo-based thinking at all levels is too static to address this dynamic reality.. We are prisoners of our own industrial age thinking in the developed world and we need a historical paradigm shift.. This means integrated approach with social, economical and ecological considerations through new governance model.. Some companies and communities are forerunners, but governments have been slow to change.. ”, Dr Mikko Kosonen, President of Finnish Innovation Fund SITRA.. Holistic approach to a bioeconomy by national governments.. - In addition to holistic national approaches also more coherent policy approach is needed between countries globally, when transiting to a greener, more resource efficient use of natural resources.. - Theme-based governmental approaches shall be adapted.. - Governments must lead the way by supplying environmentally sound public services and infrastructure to foster the transition to sustainable consumption.. Appropriate pricing of natural resources is an important policy measure towards more efficient and sustainable use of resources.. Ambitious and cross-sectoral goals, courage in leadership.. Utilizing open data more efficiently for sustainability.. Transparent and independent impact analysis and a systematic stakeholder process for all policy decisions.. Y.. oung doctors and doctoral Students were assistant reporters of Koli Forum, they highlighted the next 8 key topics which would be most important to boost bioeconomy and sustainable development:.. 1 Relationship of forests, water and climate change is a key factor is sustainable development, and should be better understood.. 2 Differentiated responsibility and call for local/global action on sustainability issues.. 3 Need for increased use of waste for energy, better use of resources, cycle approach.. 4 Right pricing of resources and environmental services.. 5 Information and infrastructure for sustainable living.. 6 Call for action to demonstrate feasibility of the bioeconomy.. 7 Need for a paradigm shift and integrated approaches to governance.. 8 Importance of communication, and working with behavioural and social sciences.. WWF youth volunteers message was that it is time to take actions.. They also emphasized that the solutions for solving climate crises does not come for free.. They pointed out that if you learn to think about sustainability and the climate crises at an early age, that would make a difference..
