With summer rapidly approaching an end, we are moving closer to our identified week of North American Minerals Days. In the second year of our initiative, we've identified the week of October 10th as the ideal time to cluster events. As we continue planning events for North American Minerals Days, we will be sharing tools and ideas for member event planning. Taking our cue from the success of European Minerals Day, all associated events will be member driven with different focuses. From open mine days to roundtable discussions with elected officials, these events are geared towards highlighting whatever aspect of your operations you would like to educate the public about.
This afternoon we are sharing information on how to host a successful community event at your habitat. As we work to change the inaccurate public perception that all mining is terrible for the environment, North American Minerals Days is a good opportunity to show off your reclamation projects. Demonstrating the respect and care we, as an industry, have for our environment can go a long way to correcting misconceptions about mining, especially when interacting with younger individuals. Please see the attached presentation from the Wildlife Habitat Council for tips and ideas on how to host a successful community event focused on your habitat.
If you are interested or planning on hosting an event please contact Ariel Hill-Davis for assistance.
