Kick-off Meeting to Create a World Forum of Universities of Resources
on Sustainability: 10 to 12 June 2012
Sustainability awareness concerning raw materials has grown considerably in many countries albeit partly in different directions. The TU Bergakademie Freiberg and the Mining University St. Petersburg – think that it is time for an international discussion on how the influence and position of the universities of resources around the world could be strengthened in society, industry and politics, and how we could further improve international education in sustainability issues. Therefore, creating a World Forum of Universities of Resources on Sustainability was proposed.
More than 50 international Universities of Resources joined the Kick-Off-Meeting to be among the founders of the World Forum.
Also representatives from UNESCO joined the meeting.
