Please join the Cities Summit of the Americas and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines for a Cities Summit Side Event – Partners in Development – Mining and Cities in the Americas on Tuesday, April 25 at the Colorado School of Mines.
In connection with the upcoming Cities Summit of the Americas, Colorado School of Mines, will facilitate mining related site visits and host panel discussions for stakeholders in the mining sector with a thematic focus on development in cities throughout the Americas.
Historically, mining has been a key driver for social and economic development in cities across the Americas. As more minerals will be needed to support the energy transition, efforts to secure and diversify global supply chains of minerals, especially the critical mineral inputs necessary for clean energy technologies, are a top priority for the United States Government. These efforts have important implications for mining companies and cities in the Americas, particularly as it relates to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards.
This event will provide mining sector stakeholders with visibility on past successes and future challenges for the mining industry and cities in the Americas as partners in development. Overall, this event aligns with the goals of the Minerals Security Partnership, which was announced by U.S. Department of State, Under Secretary for Economic Growth, Energy and Environment, Jose W. Fernandez in June 2022, and envisions greater cooperation with mining sector partners in the region.
The event will be organized in three panel sessions to highlight experiences presented by major mining companies and cities in the Americas with interventions by panelists from the private sector, government representatives, civil society and other relevant stakeholders.
The event will be sponsored by Freeport-McMoran and Newmont Corporation.
Additional sponsorship opportunities are available through the Biennial of the Americas.
