Can mining make the world a greener place?

Do you know which metals power your mobile phone? Or what it takes to manufacture a laptop? And how are we going to make all the electric cars we need for a green future?

Join our panel as they discuss our growing demand for new technologies, and the natural resources we need to create them. We'll cover the practicalities of finding the raw materials the world relies on, and whether mining can really be sustainable. 


3 and 4 December 2020

Natural History Museum London
