Mine Closure 2024 Themes

26–28 November 2024 | The Westin Perth, Western Australia

Conference themes

Mine closure and a focus on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

At Mine Closure 2024 we are taking a new approach to the conference themes. This year we are focusing the Mine Closure conference within the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

According to the UN, ‘The SDGs aim to transform our world. They are a call to action to end poverty and inequality, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy health, justice, and prosperity.’ These goals map closely on to what good mine closure should aim for as an outcome and many of our themes in previous conferences map closely to these. To help us look beyond the mines we wish to close, we hope to encourage a broader appreciation of what our industry and conference can achieve on the global stage.
