Life cycle toolbox for Regions summer school

“Life cycle toolbox for Regions”

The sixth international Summer School on ‘Life cycle approaches for sustainable regional development’ will be held in Luxembourg on 1-3 September 2017

This Summer School is an opportunity for professionals and regional managers to become more familiar about how to extend traditional life cycle tools into new application areas in sustainable development.  The objective is to encourage expanded LCA use by influential social partners who have not so far employed these techniques extensively.  This includes regional institutions, research teams and industrial associations that wish to enhance the effectiveness of their sustainability initiatives.  It is also aimed at life cycle professionals and academics interested in broadening their client base by offering new applications.

The Summer School draws on a recent book “Life cycle approaches to sustainable regional development (2017)”.  A number of the summer school lecturers are authors of important chapters in this publication.


FSLCI is closely associated with the summer school through its Education Committee.

The 2017 edition of the summer school will explore topics such as LCA approaches that address broader sustainability issues, mapping regional materials flows, agent-based LCA for mobility, life cycle techniques for landscape and land-use, as well as circular economy and building a LCM toolbox for SMEs.  These instruments will be examined also for their role in strengthening regional programmes in circular economy and in building a bio-economy.  The summer school uses an interactive programme structure based on lectures, workshops, cases studies and role-plays to explore the key issues.

A preliminary 1-day refresher course on life cycle assessment will also be offered for a small extra fee.

This year’s Summer School is held at Luxembourg, back to back with the International Conference on Life Cycle Management 2017,  3-6 September 2017
