POSITIVE IMPACT AND LEGACY

We work to ensure a positive legacy from the events sector in Bilbao, from an economic, social and environmental point of view. To this end, we work closely with a number of organisations.

BBK KUNA

A major forum for discussion and creation, also open to the organisation of events.

IMPREDECIBLE BASOA

Social company that works in the environmental field whose goal is to create a permanent native forest in the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve. This serves to offset the carbon footprint of any event, leaving a positive legacy at the destination while also contributing to improving the biodiversity of this natural setting.

Native species are planted to create a forest, typical of the Cantabrian coast.

It works to collaborate in solving problems including climate change, violence against women, the loneliness of people, care of migrants, working with vulnerable groups or providing an immediate response in emergencies.

WINDEUROPE

FOOD4FUTURE

CONGRESO PSICOLOGÍA POSITIVA

During the celebration of the WindEurope 2022 congress in the city, students from the Engineering course were invited to attend the event and participate in the different presentations and activities that took place.
On the Arena beach, Offshore Wind 4Kids organised a family activity to showcase wind as a resource, where both children and adults learned how to build a wind turbine to scale.

Taking advantage of the theme of the congress, the catering company in charge of this event, Grupo Iruña catering, launched an initiative together with Oreka, to develop a circular treatment of the food surplus from a large event.
At the same time, the Escuela Superior de Hostelería de Bilbao presented to the public some of the projects of its Food Lab with the greatest repercussions for the future.

 

After the celebration of the 5th Positive Psychology Congress from 12 to 14 May and with the clear objective of reaching ordinary citizens, Psikologia Kalean arrives in Bilbao. This activity will disseminate the meaning of positive psychology and its value in current times.
To this end, different talks and participatory workshops will be held on topics as important today as anxiety, addiction prevention, suicide or neuropsychological sequelae post-coital, among others.

FOOD4FUTURE

During the Food4Future congress, a prize was awarded to the best footech startup within the “Foodtech Startup Forum 2022”. The winner was the Navarre-based startup MOA Foodtech, a company dedicated to converting by-products from the agri-food industry into new sources of protein.
In this way, the work and effort made by small companies to investigate and gain a foothold in the international market is promoted and rewarded.
