Can mining make the World a Greener Place?


Conveners: Richard Herrington & Elizabeth Downey


How does this fit with sustainable green futures? Can we even source enough of these metals to support this? Join an international panel of experts as they discuss our growing demand for new technologies, and the natural resources we need to create them.

BBC science presenter Professor Iain Stewart hosted a live debate on mining and its role in society. Together, we imagined how the planet could look in 2050 and discover how we can all play a part in creating the world we'd like to live in. Pitch your ideas and pose questions to the experts.
