A reliable, affordable, and just supply of earth materials can be the foundation for a sustainable future and young professionals are the key to that future.
Closing remarks by UNESCO representative.
Minerals and other Earth materials are a key component in the development of a sustainable global society, providing essential raw materials for technologies and economic growth while respecting the natural world.
iCRAG, in collaboration with the International Union of Geological Sciences, have organized the upcoming UNESCO online lecture series on Earth Materials for a Sustainable and Thriving Society.
This programme of lectures, designed for a global audience, will provide diverse perspectives on Earth materials and their role in society. Leading natural scientists, social scientists, and educators will look at how Earth materials are critical to a sustainable future and how the minerals sector, adhering to best practices, can contribute to society in a socially and environmentally positive way.
The lectures will be delivered in webinar format by recognized global experts who will frame their presentations in the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Series will boost knowledge of Earth materials and contribute to better informed local, regional, and international discussions.
All lectures are free to attend and will include live Q&A sessions with the presenters. All sessions will be conducted in English, but live captioning in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Swahili, and Hindi will be available.
