Rethinking Value - Resources for Planetary Wellbeing

4-6 September 2023, Geneva & online

World Resources Forum 2023

Rethinking Value Resource Use Digitalisation Policy Business Systems Collaboration Consumption Resource Governance

WRF'23

A conference outside the comfort zone.

A global dialogue to make resource use a powerful driver for planetary wellbeing.

We live in times of economic, social and environmental disruption. The economic model we have relied upon has been driving the triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss. Time for systemic change has never been more urgent.

We require the power of collective imagination and open collaboration to move towards a future where global resource use becomes a driver for planetary wellbeing.

WRF’23 welcomes international policy-makers, businesses, scientists and civil society leaders to find innovative solutions and co-create a new story of sustainable, systemic change.

Our Venue

We chose a special conference venue to welcome our participants. Geneva’s International Conference Center (CICG) is a world-class event venue, which benefits from a privileged location in close proximity to the Place des Nations, the main International Organisations and permanent missions based in Geneva. Why Geneva? This is an easy choice for Europe’s most international city, which is home to 32 international organisations, 250 non-governmental organisations, 900 multinationals and 26,000 international diplomats and civil servants. 

We can’t wait to welcome you in the heart of Geneva.
