Resources for Future Generations 2018 is a collaborative, ambitious event that seeks to highlight business, science, and policy. The event will bring together attendees from industry, government, and academia as well as Indigenous peoples, and local communities to discuss some of the most pressing challenges concerning resources and related sustainability issues. The conference will cover many aspects of earth science that underpin our understanding of resources, focused sessions on critical aspects of energy, minerals and water, and a broad program covering societal, policy, Indigenous, community and educational topics.
