iCRAG delivers its ReSToRE Summer School
The Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG), in collaboration with the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGs), welcomed over 40 participants from 25 countries to Dublin last week hosting a week-long summer school that examined issues at the intersection of the social and earth sciences.
The programme, under the patronage of UNESCO, addressed the social and environmental issues arising from the demand from natural resources including the mined-resources required for renewable energy infrastructure, batteries, electric vehicles and electricity generation and transmission systems.
The Irish Times has detailed the school and its programme in the context of Sustainable Development Goals: Rare metals needed but social and environmental issues ‘must be resolved’.
