Bioeconomy Youth Champions

The International Advisory Council on Global Bioeconomy (IAC) was looking for young champions motivated to engage with the global bioeconomy youth during the virtual Global Bioeconomy Summit 2020, 16th – 20th November 2020.

For this reason, the IAC decided to have a call. The objective of this call was to bring together an eclectic and geographically diverse leadership group of young people, from across the globe, who will act as ambassadors for the bioeconomy at GBS2020.
Young people with a strong interest in global bioeconomy development could apply for it, e.g. high school and college students, young researchers and academics, young professionals, policymakers and entrepreneurs, young non-profit leaders, journalists and social media influencers.

The Jury was extremely impressed by the diversity and quality of the more than 100 submissions, making it a very tough decision. However, the jury has selected eight Youth Champions for the Global Bioeconomy Summit 2020 and we are all very proud to present them.
