What will jobs in the minerals industry look like in 25 years?
With accelerating changes in political, economic, environmental, social and technological contexts, the nature of work has been transforming, and continues to transform, at ever faster rates and in increasingly unpredictable ways. Many of the jobs of today will look very different in 2045, and the nature of work in the minerals industry is no different.
Because these changes are complex and emergent, they require multiple and diverse perspectives to define and make sense of how potential futures might play out.
Join us Saturday, February 29, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. to explore how work in the minerals industry, from exploration through production and beyond closure, will change in the next 25 years.
This highly interactive session, facilitated by the experts at Watershed Partners, will be built around a backcasting exercise, in which participants from government, the private sector, academia and civil society work together to think through how an idealized version of the future of work in mining will be achieved over the next 25 years. Participants will explore timely topics, including:
- environmental health and safety
- relationships among companies, communities and governments
- technological advancements
- the social licence to operate
The Forum will be held in meeting room 105 of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, just prior to the launch of PDAC 2020. Please note that registration is open; you do not need to be registered for PDAC to attend the Sustainability Forum.
On the day of the event, the registration desk will open at 12:00 p.m. The main event will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., with a networking reception from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
