Call for Abstracts is published!

The Call for Abstracts of WRF’23 is now open – have a look at our key thematic areas and contribute to our science-based, multi-stakeholder dialogue!

Call for Abstracts

International experts from a broad range of fields and disciplines are invited to submit their abstracts and present their contributions during WRF’23, either in-person in Geneva or online. This edition’s conference tracks will be explored through a multi-disciplinary approach able to convey together environmental, societal, technological, economic, governance and geo-political perspectives. Thanks to a diverse and vibrant programme, WRF’23 provides an open platform for scientific contributors to present and discuss their research with scientists, policy-makers, business leaders and civil society organisations.

The WRF’23 Conference tracks are:

  • Sufficiency: from a consumer to a sufficient society
  • Value Chains: from extractive to regenerative value chains
  • Digitalisation: from growth to purpose

The full list of thematic areas of interest under each of the three conference tracks is outlined in the Call for Abstracts, together with an overview of the submission process and main guidelines. All abstracts should be submitted in the dedicated online portal before February 28, 2023. There is no fee associated with abstracts submission, but upon acceptance of their submissions, contributors will have to pay the registration fee within the established deadline. More details are available on our conference website.
