Publication date: 2018
The event drew over 450 participants coming from about 50 countries, who actively contributed to the success of the conference, held in Geneva, Switzerland, on 24–25 October 2017. Over 120 scientific contributions were presented and methodologies and solutions were shared during the 16 workshops organized by partner international institutions.
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 accelerating the resource revolution will support the battle against some of today’s most pressing issues: climate change and poverty. Participants actively proposed strategies and presented solutions to target these challenges and achieve the much-needed transition.
