SEG is excited to bring its Outreach program to communities throughout northwest BC. Through our Outreach program we talk with groups and classes about the importance of exploration and mining to community sustainability.
SEG's Outreach work is funded in part through a grant from the Association for Mineral Exploration with the focus of increasing awareness of the contribution of the mineral exploration sector to the economic health of BC and Canada.
Each year SEG plans an Outreach campaign that connects with local groups including schools, councils and bands, chambers of commerce and government ministries. These are some of the highlights from our 2016 work:
The regular brown bag lunches are where SEG members gather with members from the provincial ministries that are associated with exploration and mining. The content is driven by attendees and presentations and discussion are leading to greater understanding of the needs of industry for government workers and conversely, industry members are learning how to navigate government protocol and systems more efficiently.
SEG is very interested in meeting with your group in the coming year. Please contact the Outreach Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the conversation.
