Resources: the theme of WEHC Paris 2022

We invite you to join us in Paris to discuss the many ‘Resources’ which have been and are at stake in past and present economies, societies, cultures and environment. Within the conference theme of resources, we consider natural and modified, renewable and non-renewable, material, immaterial and energetic resources, as well as their discoveries, exhaustion, recycling, constraints and limits.

We also include the part of labor involved in their exploitation, the institutional dynamics and the involvement of scientific, technical, financial, and digital knowledge.
