First International Forum of Young Leaders in Responsible Mine Development

A call for application

Québec Mines 2013, to be held from November 11 to 14 at the Québec City Convention Centre, will host the first International Forum of Young Leaders in Responsible Mine Development (“Forum international des jeunes leaders en développement minier responsable”). The main theme of this first edition will be responsible mine management from a perspective of sustainable development, social acceptability and environmental protection.

Organized by the Ministère des Ressources naturelles du Québec, in collaboration with the Offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec (LOJIQ), including the Office franco-québécois pour la jeunesse (OFQJ), as well as other partners at the national and international levels, this forum is aimed at young leaders from the educational, public and private sectors.

This event will allow young leaders from the province, the rest of Canada, and other countries, particularly French-speaking countries, to develop a better understanding of the needs and challenges faced by the mining industry at the regional, national and international levels. The forum will allow participants to share their viewpoints and experiences in a context of intercultural cooperation. The main emphasis will be on the contributions of scientific and technical research, and on sharing best practices and innovative solutions.

In addition to benefitting from talks and workshops, those in attendance will also have an opportunity to take part in networking events in an atmosphere conducive to the exchange of ideas. Finally, participants can also learn about opportunities for studies and professional development by attending other activities with this focus during the Québec Mines convention.

Are you between 18 and 35 years old and interested in attending? Apply before the deadline of August 15, 2013!
