Circular Economy, Green Economy and Bioeconomy are currently mainstreamed in academia and
policy making as key sustainability concepts. These have different standpoints and possibly imply
different sustainability visions. Furthermore, the three concepts are understood and applied in research
and policy making in different ways, signaling a certain internal diversity. The concepts are however
rarely discussed together in a comparative manner. The course aims at giving an overview of the realm
of action, limits and synergies of Green, Circular and Bio economy.
The course will consist of four days of intensive lectures, each led by different expert researchers.
Invited speakers, among others, include Prof. Anne Toppinen and posdoc Jaana Korhonen (University
of Helsinki), postdoc Elias Hurmekoski (European Forest Institute), Senior researcher Riina Antikainen
(Finnish Environment Institute), Senior Policy analyst Marianne Kettunen (Institute for European
Environmental Policy). The course participants will be required to familiarize themselves with some
literature before and after the course, participate actively with critical contributions to the lectures and
seminar, and write an essay at the end of the course.
