We are thrilled to invite you to the final event of the LCA4Regions project, taking place in Lombardy Region Brussels Delegation offices on the 6th June 2023. 

The workshop will be an opportunity to celebrate LCA4Regions partners collective efforts, and to share and discuss lessons learnt about the adoption of regional policies aimed at a more efficient use of natural resources to reduce the non-desirable secondary effects (spill-overs) that generate negative economic and environmental impacts. The workshop is also a Partner Event of the framework of the EU Green Week 2023.

Join us for an inspiring day as we showcase good practices on how to improve impact-driven policies. The event will be articulated in 3 panels: Life cycle instruments for regional policies; Skills and training needs for sustainable regions; Improving green public procurement with life cycle instruments.

This event is a unique opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and organizations, and to get to know achievements of the LCA4Regions project through the voice of key persons involved.
