Business, culture and fun in Summer Celebration with Otaniemi startups, creatives and sustainability professionals on June 11

The first ever virtual Summer Celebration with Otaniemi startups, creatives and sustainability professionals was a refreshing dive into Espoo innovation ecosystem scene.

The event was arranged on June 11 in Zoom and broadcasted from Urban Mill, in the heart of Espoo Innovation Garden at Aalto University campus. It attracted 170 participants to learn and discuss about collaboration in the Otaniemi innovation ecosystem. The recording can be watched on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTlAD5KCmaM&t=1s

This was followed by breakout sessions and discussions by the leaders of the City of Espoo, Aalto University, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland TEK. These are the key institutional players shaping the success of Espoo Innovation Garden, already the biggest Innovation hub in the Northern Europe.

In 2018 the City of Espoo was nominated the most intelligent city in the world. Mayor Jukka Mäkelä emphasized that the point is not to be the most intelligent city but to be the most intelligent community.

“That means that we have to do it together with our citizens, but also it is very important for to the city of Espoo to collaborate with Aalto University, research centers like VTT and with the companies. Collaboration is the key word” he continued.

Keynote speakers were Jyri Engeström, Partner & Co-Founder at Yes VC and Patrick Shulist, Assistant Professor of Sustainability in Business in Aalto University.

Kutsu etäyhteystapahtumaan 2.4.2020: Miten tehdään muovin suljettu kierto Helsingin seudulla? (muutama paikka vapaana)

Edelleenlähetetty Pääkaupunkiseudun Smart&Clean säätiön kutsu Urban Mill -verkostolle:

Miten kaikki muovi kiertää:
Aika: 2.4. 9.00 – 10.00 Liitythän mukaan jo klo 8.45. Esitykset alkavat klo 9.00
Paikka: Zoom etäyhteys, linkki toimitetaan ilmoittautuneille

Koronatilanteen vuoksi järjestämme tilaisuuden Zoom-etäyhteydellä. Ilmoittaudu mukaan tai vahvista aiempi ilmoittautumisesi alla olevasta linkistä. Zoom-kutsulinkki lähetetään vain ilmoittautuneille.

Pääkaupunkiseudulla vain kuusi prosenttia muovista kiertää uudelleen materiaaliksi. Tavoitteena on nostaa muovijätteen kierrätysaste 60 prosenttiin. Onnistuminen tässä saisi aikaan päästövähenemän, joka vastaa noin 80 000 pääkaupunkilaisen henkilökohtaisia CO2 päästöjä.

Haluatko sinä olla mukana rakentamassa tätä konkreettista muutosta kiertotalouteen?

Tervetuloa aamukahveille kuulemaan lisää kokonaisuudesta ja verkostoitumaan eri toimijoiden kanssa. Teoista ja rooleista keskustelemassa muun muassa Espoon kaupunginjohtaja Jukka Mäkelä, Fortumin Kierrätys- ja jäteliiketoiminnan johtaja Kalle Saarimaa ja Lassila & Tikanojan yhteiskuntasuhdejohtaja Jorma Mikkonen.

Smart & Clean – säätiö on talven aikana kerännyt dataa, analysoinut sitä ja tunnistanut vaikuttavimmat teot muovijätteen vähentämiseen, kierrätyksen lisäämiseen ja uusiomuovituotteiden kysynnän kasvattamiseen. Avainkumppanit ovat sitoutuneet kunnianhimoiseen tavoitteeseen – pakkausmuovin kierrätysaste nostetaan 50 prosenttiin ja muovin kokonaiskierrätysaste 20 prosenttiin vuoteen 2025 mennessä. Tule kuulemaan ja keskustelemaan, miten tämä on mahdollista saavuttaa sekä miten sinä voisit tähän vaikuttavaan työhön osallistua.

Ohjelma:

Miten tehdään systeemisiä ilmastoratkaisuja? Esimerkki: Kaikki muovi kiertää
Iina Oilinki ja Jaana Pelkonen, Smart & Clean -säätiö.

Keskustelu:
Kaikki muovi kiertää: miten toteuttaa vaikuttavat teot – kuka tekee mitä?
Jukka Mäkelä, kaupunginjohtaja Espoo
Kalle Saarimaa, liiketoimintajohtaja Fortum
Jorma Mikkonen, yhteiskuntasuhdejohtaja Lassila & Tikanoja
Loput keskustelijat varmistuvat myöhemmin
