The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue’s Newsletter has had a refresh for it’s new April-May 2020 edition. Now titled ‘The Dialogue’, stakeholders are able to discover more about the Dialogue’s project and activities than ever before.
Despite the ongoing challenging conditions that late 2019 and early 2020 has presented, the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue is busily progressing a number of projects and activities in consultation with our key stakeholders across our Steering Committees and Joint Working Groups.
The April-May 2020 edition of ‘The Dialogue’ newsletter provides a roundup of recent developments, including:
- 2019 FORUM SUMMARY ‘TRULY RESPECTFUL ENGAGEMENT’ – Community, government and the mining industry came together in record numbers in a collaboration of ideas aimed at both minimising the impacts and increasing the opportunities from mining at the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue’s Annual Forum in November.
- SCHOOL TOURS EXPAND ROUTE – Although it will have a delayed start, the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue’s School Mine Tours Program plans to travel an expanded bus route in 2020.
- COMMITTED TO COLLABORATION – The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue has entered 2020 with its advisory and working groups committed to the successful ongoing collaboration between community and the mining industry aimed at minimising the impacts of mining in the region.
- DIALOGUE MESSAGING IN THE CLASSROOM – The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue’s message of co-existence between community and the mining industry will become part of the curriculum for schools participating in the recently launched Pathways to Resource Industry and Mining Employment (PRIME) program.
- VOICES OF OUR COMMUNITY – Community representatives play a vital role with the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue by bringing the community’s voice to the discussion. Meet the Dialogue’s long–serving community representatives, Di Sneddon and Ken Bray.
