Mining Encounters Conference

On 22-23 August 2023, JTPac’s Nick Bainton and John Burton zoomed into a two-day seminar on mining issues with researchers from Canada, Australia and New Caledonia. It was a great opportunity to hear from other colleagues working on Energy Transitions and Critical Minerals, and to present our work on ‘double exposure’ to climate change and extractive capitalism in the Pacific.

The event was co organized by the Knowledge Network Mining Encounters and Indigenous Sustainable Livelihoods Cross Perspectives from the Circumpolar North and Melanesia/Australia MinErAL, the Sustainable Minerals Institute, the Pacific Centre for Social Responsibility and Natural Resources, and the Centre National de Recherche Technologique (CNRT).
