Footprint Forum 2010: Addressing the Global Resource Challenge

Global Footprint Network recently completed our second Partner Network Conference, Footprint Forum 2010, held in Colle di Val d’Elsa, just outside of Siena, Italy from June 7-12 2010 in conjunction with the EcoDynamics Group of the University of Siena. Participants included decision-makers, experts and scientists from around the world. From Ann Cotton, to Peter Victor, to Hannes Kunz, our diverse list of guest speakers shared presentations on crucial issues such as peak oil, the importance of education, and re-tooling our economic system – all in relation to our ecological resources. Together, we discussed challenges and opportunities that all of us face in a world of growing resource constraints.

Below are just a few of the stories that emerged from the conference.
