größtes Event in diesem Jahr, dass im LAB produziert wurde

What do packaging and plastics look like for tomorrow? We answered this question at our second congress stage on September 7 together with numerous experts in this field. Our conclusion: There are many possible solutions, and many companies are already demonstrating that Cradle to Cradle can be excellently implemented in the plastics and packaging industry. From established industrial companies to new C2C startups, waste management companies and recycling service providers, the speakers brought different perspectives to our panels.

At our 21st LAB Talk on June 4, we had the executive director of the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Ellen Ueberschär, as our guest. The conversation was about how we can achieve political change and promote Cradle to Cradle on a political level. One of the key questions is how we actually want to live in the future and what solutions we can use to achieve this.

At the Fall Academy, we set a new attendance record with 450 registrations from active and external participants. From a political panel discussion on C2C in research to a workshop on agile project management in volunteer work, the program covered a wide range of topics. And because one digital academy was simply not enough for us, we organized another academy in the fall, which was also a complete success.
