Whilst Covid-19 continues to affect us and create a great deal of uncertainty, it also brings with it an opportunity to shape how life will look once we have overcome this challenge. Governments worldwide are considering what happens next, and what world we wish to emerge into. The virus has been transformative, making people aware that global issues – whether they be a virus, climate change, or the way the world extracts and uses minerals and other raw materials – require a global response. With the overall aim of leveraging existing initiatives, techniques and policy to create a technical framework that removes the disconnect between operations and investment, a group of like-minded professionals is arranging an online conference where ideas, opinions, anecdotes relating to responsible mining and raw materials can be discussed and debated.
Hosting a conference now, at a time when connecting with each other is more meaningful than ever, creates an opportunity to start guiding actions by engaging different, much-valued stakeholder groups.
The conference will take place via live video streaming with all sessions recorded for uploading to a You Tube channel thereby creating a library for future reference and which captures perspectives as they are right now. Each presenter will have a maximum of 10 minutes to talk with time for questions afterwards.
As stakeholders in the mining industry you are hereby invited to either present at or attend the conference. Details can be found on the newly launched website: www.responsiblerawmaterials.com
