Sustainability in mining engineering : seeking a model for education and research Costa, Silvana Dunham da; Scoble, Malcolm


This paper considers how the Mining Engineering Department at UBC is addressing the need to integrate sustainable development into education and research on behalf of industry and society. In particular, it considers the evolution of a new collaborative and multidisciplinary model for education and research, the Sustainability Working Group (SWG). This Group has brought together a diverse array of disciplines from academia, industry, government, NGO's and mining communities. The operational mechanisms and structure of SWG have enabled momentum to be gained through several multidisciplinary educational and research networking initiatives.
