Resources for Future Generations (RFG2018), an international conference on energy, minerals, water and the earth, is expected to attract 4,000 scientists, policy-makers, industry representatives and members of civil society. Together, we will examine the availability of energy, minerals and water from the perspective of the earth – from the sources and origin of resources to their sustainable extraction and use.

RFG2018 organizers include The International Union of Geosciences (IUGS), the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), the Geological Association of Canada (GAC), the Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC), and the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences (CFES). These organizations are supported by an extensive group of Canadian and international technical partners.
