RFG2018 - Vancouver
Acadia faculty members Sandra Barr, Peir Pufahl, and Cliff Stanley, as well as recent MSc graduate Gabriel Sombini dos Santos, were in Vancouver on June 16-21 to participate in the first international conference dedicated to the availability and delivery of resources to sustain future generations. Resources for Future Generations (RFG2018) was held under the auspices of the International Union of Geological Sciences and organized by Canadian geoscience organizations, including the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences (of which Sandra Barr is past-president), and the Geological and Mineralogical Associations of Canada.
The meeting took place under sunny skies at the scenic Vancouver Convention Centre on the waterfront. Over half of the 2000 delegates at the conference were from countries other than Canada, resulting in a broad range of sessions and panel discussions focused on Earth, Energy, Minerals, Water, Resources and Society, and Education and Knowledge.
