Many certainties have fallen apart in this pandemic period and there is a greater need for change. Partners from the LCA4Regions firmly believe that the integration of life cycle thinking in regional decision-making is more important than ever.

It is time to share experiences on life cycle approaches and public procurement tools after the first learning voyage in Lithuania, 2nd in Navarra (SP) and 3rd in Satakunta (FI). Because of COVID-19, it is not possible to perform the exchange of experiences in Slovenia, so we hope that you can participate in this 3-day event and spread life cycle thinking together with us!
