SPREAD Project Consortium

Advisors

An Advisory Board ensures that the whole project is informed by viewpoints and insights from a wide variety of stakeholders. The Advisory Board Members will act as advisors to ensure that the outcomes of the project reflect societal (and geographical) concerns in the broadest sense - including insights from policy making, education and civil society. The board as whole consists of people who are in the position to offer strategic overview and insight in these particular fields.

Representatives from governments, education and civil society organisations sit on the advisory board – as shown by the table below.

The SPREAD Sustainable Lifestyles 2050 involves businesses as  important sources of data (environmental and consumer trends data) and practical expertise (product life-cycle management and influencing the consumer through communications) that will provide valuable inputs into the project. Input and buy-in are particularly important for the preparation of the policy briefs and recommendations.

To ensure a wide participation of business stakeholders, the Consortium has invited eight private sector organisations as business advisors. All are significant players in European industry and bring valuable input for the discussions on sustainable lifestyles. These so-called Business Advisors will participate actively to the work of the stakeholder working groups and they will comment and give input for different project materials. They do not have a decision making role in the project.

The Business Advisors are shown in the table below.
