Resources for Future Generations 2018

June 16, 2018 - June 21, 2018

PREMIERE CONFERENCE ON ENERGY • MINERALS • WATER • THE EARTH

 

Why RFG 2018?

The rapid growth of developing economies and the fundamental needs of many disadvantaged people across the globe are resulting in an increased demand for many resources and changes in the delivery of existing ones. The need for focused environmental priorities and new technologies will add additional requirements and constraints.

The International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS), the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences (CFES), the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), the Geological Association of Canada (GAC) and the Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC) are partnering to bring industry, academia and governments together to tackle this growing issue.

The Resources for Future Generations conference (RFG 2018) takes its theme from a new IUGS initiative of the same name designed to mobilize geoscientists, policy-makers and other stakeholders to explore resource and related sustainability issues.
