More than 600 participants coming from about 110 countries and international organisations attended and actively contributed to the annual WRF conference, held in Davos, Switzerland, on 11–14 October 2015.
Participants, representing governments, businesses, think tanks, scientific communities and civil societies, as well as students and young researchers, debated and exchanged their views on how to increase resource efficiency, invest in innovation for sustainable production, respond to climate change, decrease the socio-environmental footprint of current consumption and production patterns, achieve sustainable lifestyles and ensure high quality of life for all groups of society. Attendees formulated global, national, regional and local policy recommendations and proposed strategies for further action and research.
