Structural change has many facets. Transforming to a model region for sustainable and circular bioeconomy can only succeed if a wide variety of actors from the region tackle the transition together. 

Get in touch and get involved! It's about our common future in the Rhenish mining region - for a liveable environment and new, interesting jobs for all of us and future generations. 

There are many ways to get involved: as a citizen, farmer, researcher, local authority or business representative. The coordination office BioökonomieREVIER would like to work together with all of you on this ambitious vision of the future. Feel free to get in touch with us. 

With our mobile exhibition BioökonomieMOBIL, we invite you to directly exchange with us on bioeconomy and its potential to transform the Rhenish mining region. The exhibition showcases bioeconomy innovation to experience and touch.
