About: Resources for Future Generations 2018 (RFG2018) is an innovative international conference dedicated to the availability of resources needed to sustain future generations. RFG2018 will provide participants with a program that will explore six vital themes: Energy, Minerals, the Earth Water, Communities & Society and Education – and the interdependencies between them.
Led by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS), RFG2018 will be hosted by Canadian partners – the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences (CFES), the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), the Geological Association of Canada (GAC), and the Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC). An additional 40+ world organizations have joined the initiative as Technical Partners.
This joint venture is estimated to attract 4,000 + researchers, policymakers, scientists and industry representatives. Grounded in fundamental earth science, the conference will serve as a forum for participants to discuss activities as well as the key issues and trends in these closely inter-related areas. These topics are central to the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
The technical program knowledge will be shared and exchanged over 4 full days in 24 parallel rooms, 200+ sessions, and 2,000 presentations. Daily Plenaries, keynote addresses, and daily public talks will mobilize thousands at a time. An exhibition of 100 select exhibitors and hundreds of technical posters will be at the center of the networking and business exchange.
