Keywords:bioeconomy, authoetnography, experience
As nowadays we are experiencing the boom of Bioeconomy, this paper presents the evolving results of autoetnography study. Waste and by-product use are the key issues related to the bioeconomy, so this paper seeks to present the everyday experiences linked to bioeconomy challenges, choosing to debate daily experiences as the narratives in personal level. The presented personal experiences, as short stories, reveal the complexities of daily choices, doubts and daily reflections between fun and playfulness, between guilt and uncertainty. The discussed autoetnography experiences lead to deeper discussion about the dilemma of challenging daily life living in bioeconomy times, opening up the intertwined personal narratives. As well, this study shows the importance to discuss the various research paradigms that would help researchers discover new insights and develop new studies, explaining the challenges and daily intertwining individual experiences living in bioeconomy era.
