This is Caroline from IGEL reporting from the World Resources Forum 2011 in snowy Davos, Switzerland. I am a part of an international team of bloggers covering the conference. There are more than 400 people here from all over the world (though only 3 from the US!). To read about the discussions, speakers and more, you can follow us on Twitter @oikosreporter, Facebook, and at our blog.

In the meantime, here’s our introductory video about the project and our student reporter team:
