Digitalisation holds great potential in helping industries to accelerate their decarbonisation journeys. A digital and future-oriented economy can enable Europe to strengthen its industrial position while driving climate neutrality. However, this ambition is strongly linked to the urgency of upskilling and reskilling EU citizens through a mix of policy interventions and industry solutions.

The EU Green Week partner event „Green Digital Skills for Sustainable Value Chains: Bridging the Sustainability Skills Gap“, hosted by the Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) will shed light on current European policies and how these convert into industrial actions.

The one-day event will address the following questions:

At the event, CSCP‘s Executive Director Michael Kuhndt will join the panel discussion on the topic “Global Industrial Collaboration for Sustainable Value Chains” on 8 June 2023 at 11:40. Kuhndt is also a board member of GeSI .

When it comes to leading sustainable lives, a key question is how to identify which actions have the biggest impact and how to turn them into long-lasting habits. Through a series Living Labs workshops, our PSLifestyle project has been working on an online tool that supports citizens to measure their footprint and take concrete action to reduce it.

In April and May 2023, citizens from 8 European countries (Portugal, Finland, Estonia, Germany, Slovenia, Italy, Greece and Turkey) will test the PSL tool for a sustainable and good life across key areas such as housing, food, mobility and consumption. The next workshops in Germany will take place in Wuppertal on 25 April and 16  May (17:00-20:00). Join us to test the PSL tool, give your feedback, and help finalise it – register now!

Event: PSLifestyle Living Lab Workshop
Date: 25 April 2023 and 16 May 2023
Time: 17:00-20:00
Location: Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP), Wuppertal, Germany
Language: German

A major goal of the workshops is to gather as many perspectives as possible, including which actions fit to which living contexts, how to integrate sustainability into specific lifestyles, and what valuable lessons could be borrowed from other cases. There will be room for exchange, learning as well as brainstorming.

The tool will be an asset to citizens all over Europe not only to calculate their consumption carbon footprint but also make concrete plans to reduce it. The PSL tool is currently being developed together with the PSLifestyle Living Labs participants and it will be launched in  2023 throughout the project’s pilot countries, before expanding to other European regions.
