ERF 2020 online: On 3 November 2020 the German Environment Agency organised the European Resources Forum (ERF) for the 5th time. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the English-language conference was held virtually as an online event for the first time. 630 participants from 43 countries attended.

The ERF has established as an European and international platform for the discussion on the issue of sustainable resource use by focusing on the political and scientific debate on this subject.

The conference addresses European decision makers and experts from the fields of policy development, industry, academia, civil society and the media.

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