Sufficiency: from a consumer to a sufficient society | World Resource Forum

September 5, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am UTC+2

The World Resource Forum 2023, taking place in Geneva, will propose an engaging and interactive programme to dive into some of the key topics around sustainable resource use, across the three conference tracks of sufficiencyvalue chains and digitalisation.

During the 3-days event, Hot or Cool Institute will join the panel debate titled “Sufficiency: from a consumer to a sufficient society”

The concept of sufficiency has been receiving renewed attention as an effective, if not indispensable, climate change mitigation strategy. However, it still remains a misunderstood and marginal concept, especially in policy and business environments. Can sufficiency become a powerful driver for innovative and equitable ways to deliver wellbeing for all, within planetary boundaries?

  • What is sufficiency and what potential does it hold for a sustainable and fair use of natural resources?
  • What kind of innovation can sufficiency principles give rise to, looking at policy, business and practice?
  • What sufficiency policies can be applied in key sectors, as energy, built environment and urban planning?
  • What does sufficiency mean for businesses and how can it be applied to corporate and sustainability strategy?

When: Tuesday, September 5th, from 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM.

Where: in Geneva or online – Register today here!
