RAMR2D network co-organizes "Mining the Connections" conference

Mining the Connections is an international, multidisciplinary conference that brings together academic researchers, students, government representatives, members of indigenous and non-indigenous communities, NGOs and mining companies to discuss mining developments and their impacts.

This international conference explores the many links between mining developments, local communities and the environment from a multidisciplinary perspective. It seeks to establish and strengthen links between governments, researchers, NGOs, practitioners and community representatives from around the world, in order to improve knowledge of mining development and its impacts.

In addition to more traditional presentations, the event will include workshops on key themes: Working with mining companies, Post-mining, Implementing ERAs. These workshops will enable researchers, advocacy groups, mining company representatives and communities to exchange views on these topics. Finally, post-conference activities on mining sites will be organized.

The conference was held in Quebec City, Canada, from April 25 to 27, 2022. It was a hybrid event with both in-person and online presentations and activities.
