AllThings.bioPRO is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that aims to engage citizens on the topic of the bioeconomy. As part of the project, a serious game will be developed to foster citizens’ awareness, participation and co-creation regarding aspects of the bio-based industry. VA (Public & Science) is one of 12 European partners in this three-year project, which started in September 2020.

In the online serious game, information and education will be offered to a broad public and, at the same time, data on personal preferences, opinions and ideas on the topic of bioeconomy will be gathered.  The results will help stakeholders to meet consumers’ expectations and requirements when developing their products.

Allthings.bioPRO will also collaborate with citizens on a local level. The main topics to be addressed are related to aspects of everyday life and include:

  • bio-based food packaging,
  • sustainable fashion,
  • sustainable bio-based products for children and schools
  • jobs and careers in the bioeconomy

VA will be particularly involved in developing the game mission around sustainable fashion and textiles as well as dissemination activities.
