Conference NRF 2018
For the fourth time since 2012 the German Environment Agency (UBA) is hosting the conference "National Resources Forum" (NRF) on 29 November 2018. The conference takes place at the “Ludwig Erhard Haus” in Berlin and is a cooperation project with the VDI Centre for Resource Efficiency. Approximately 300 guests are expected.
The NRF 2018 addresses decision-makers as well as experts from politics, administration, business, science and civil society. Before the National Resources Forum 2018, UBA will host the European Resources Forum 2018 from 27 till 28 November 2018.
The aim of the National Resource Forum is to provide a national discussion forum on the topic "sustainable use of natural resources" that focuses on the political and scientific debate of the subject.
After the three successful events in 2012, 2014 and 2016, the NRF has developed into an important platform for the discussion on the sustainable use of natural resources in Germany.
The National Resource Forum is closely related to the "German Resource Efficiency Program" (ProgRess), adopted by the German Federal Cabinet in February 2012, and its update from 2016 (ProgRess II).
