European Resources Forum (ERF)

A cut down tree

The next European Resources Forum takes place from 09 – 10 November 2016.

The Federal Environment Agency is hosting the 3rd European Resources Forum on 9-10 November 2016. The conference takes place in the “Ludwig Erhard Haus” in Berlin. The ERF addresses European decision-makers and experts from the fields of policy development, industry, academia, civil society and the media, and, especially, the young generation. The 2016 ERF is expected to draw some 400 participants.

After the successful conferences in the years 2012 and 2014, the European Resources Forum has become an important European platform for the discussion of the issue of sustainable resource use by focusing on the political and scientific debate on this subject.

The ERF seeks to contribute to the development and implementation of common positions for policy-making in Europe and internationally. The ERF is an important instrument for communication on resource issues and for setting up networks and initiating stakeholder alliances at the European level.
