Past Conferences

The WRF Conference is an event in a series of high-profile conferences on global resources issues, formerly known as R' Conferences (Recycling). These events have been organised since 1993 by the Swiss-based materials research institute and think-tank Empa, which is part of the prestigious ETH Domain.

In 2009 the first WRF Conference was organised in Davos, Switzerland, back to back with the R'09 Twin World Congress on Resource Management and Technology for Material and Energy Efficiency. Consecutively, the R' Conferences got entirely integrated into the WRF and in 2011 the enlarged WRF Conference took place again in Davos from September 19-21, 2011. In 2012, the main annual event of the World Resources Forum (WRF) was held in Beijing, China, organised together with colleagues from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. From October 21-23, 2012 participants from all over the world gathered to discuss about “Resources and the Green Economy". The event gathered more than 700 participants from over 40 countries at the China National Convention Center. In October 2013,  the fourth World Resources Forum was organised again in Davos, Switzerland. The Forum was dedicated to three different main topics, one for each day, namely the Political Panel on Resource Gouvernance "Can we manage our resources together?" on Monday, the Business Panel titled "Can We Seize the Business Opportunities in a Changing World?" on Tuesday, and the Lifestyles and Education Panel asking "Is it the Behaviour" on Wednesday. Next year's WRF will be organised together with partners in Peru, South-America.
