We are heading to Toronto on November 12th-14th for the 25th Annual Canadian Aboriginal Minerals Association (CAMA) Conference happening in Toronto.
Zara Contin, Chantel Henderson, John Glover, Alison Fraser, and Don Richardson of Shared Value Solutions will be attending and hope to connect with you there!
This year’s conference’s focus is "Water For Life, Mining For Need, Achieving Balance". Panels, workshops and discussions will evolve around the challenge of working toward balancing mineral development, community benefits from mining and having a safe and healthy environment, clean waters and vibrant community. CAMA’s organizer’s aim is to provide a voice for youth, elders, communities together with industry to discuss, share ideas and inform industry and governments, on how work toward balance for the benefit of All.
Shared Value Solutions is proud to sponsor CAMA’s pre-conference youth workshop on Saturday November 11th, where youth will explore the elements of water, mining, balance through an experiential process based on the ‘Theatre for Living’ format. Stay tuned for details in our next blog!
