Resources for Future Generations (#RFG2018) will bring international, Canadian and Indigenous peoples to Vancouver for a collaborative and exciting conference dedicated to the availability of resources. RFG2018 will examine three critical resources—energy, minerals and water—in the context of the Earth, environment, society, and the needs and roles of future generations. A community of scientists and professionals from several Canadian associations, working together, created this new conference.
Over four days, there will be 140 technical sessions and almost 1,500 oral and poster presentations. From Sea to Sky natural hazards to porphyry copper deposits in B.C., RFG2018 will offer 15 pre- and post-conference field trips. There will also be 26 one- and two-day short courses such as using drones in geoscience and integrating corporate social responsibility in exploration.
