Workshop on Public Acceptance and Social Impact of Mining and Minerals Recycling at Raw Week Materials

4 December 2019 Events

On 22nd November 2019 CHROMIC joined a wide group of EU H2020 projects to host a satellite event of the EU Raw Materials Week on “Public Acceptance and Social Impact of Mining and Mineral Recycling in Europe”.

The workshop aimed at setting a debate and proposing recommendations on how to improve public acceptance of mining activities, in a society in which these are – though essential for a transition to a low-carbon economy – often confronted with a negative reputation.

The satellite event was hosted by the projects NEMO, CROCODILE, TARANTULA, SecREEts, INFACT and CHROMIC itself and gathered representatives from industry, government, NGO, local citizens group, academia and international institution, who shared their points of view and provided recommendations before engaging in a lively debate on the topic of social acceptance with the numerous attendees of the event.

This project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program under Grant Agreement n° 730471
