The 1st MIREU SLO Workshop with the theme Linking SLO and Sustainability: challenges in Europe and lessons from abroad will take place in Rovaniemi, Finland, between 8th May and 9th May 2018. This first SLO Workshop seeks to understand what sustainability – social, environmental, and economic - looks like across Europe’s mining regions and how SLO both reflects this understanding and furthers it.  Through a variety of conversations, story-telling and discussion topics, we will explore international SLO guidance and practices from countries such as Australia, Chile and Canada; the challenges facing junior mining companies in Europe and whether there are practical solutions; SLO as a driver of innovation; and look at how emphasizing the link between the coming energy transition and necessary ramp-up in minerals and metals production can change the negative perception of mining pervasive throughout much of Europe.

The Clustering session will take place in the morning on 9th May with theme: SLO as a driver of innovation. 

Please find attached the draft agenda for the Workshop, as well as a registration form with some practical information on transport, the event venue and accomodation in Rovaniemi.
