Accelerating the Resource Revolution – World Resources Forum 2017
Two years after two historic global agreements – the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change – the World Resources Forum Association invites leaders from government, business, research and NGOs to Geneva to talk about how to accelerate the Resource Revolution. How should we manage, coordinate, finance, track progress, and communicate about it?
World Resources Forum 2017 is open to key stakeholders and offers first-hand information about emerging issues, global trends, progress and innovation in resources and raw materials management. During the conference, participants will interact with decision makers, learn what the Resource Revolution is all about and have the chance to discover the opportunities smart resource management brings to business and industry.
The conference will feature two sizzling days of plenary debates, partner workshops, scientific sessions, exhibition, press conferences, WRF Cinema, Art Gallery, and social program, including the famous WRF Gala Dinner and WRF Concert.
WRF is widely recognized for its global and multidisciplinary character, gathering over 500 participants from all over the world and offering international players a platform to walk the talk. WRF 2015, held in Davos, brought more than 600 participants from over 100 countries together. Back to back events were organized by the United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Industrial Development Organization, International Organization for Standardization, and other WRF partners. WRF takes place in Switzerland every two years since 2009 and another country is selected for the years in-between.
UBA is a long-standing member and supporter of World Resources Forum Association and will organize the workshop Rural Urban Nexus – Governance for Sustainable Land Use through City Region Food Strategies during the conference.
