How to attend:

​Geological Survey Ireland and MacCabe Durney Barnes are pleased to invite you to the MinLand Forum to be held in Geological Survey Ireland, Beggars Bush, Haddington Rd, Dublin 4

MinLand is a project designed to meet the challenges relating to the integration of mineral development in land use planning. The project is financed by the European Union under the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – Horizon 2020 under the Societal Challenge 5 Call.

The four MINLAND project objectives are to:

  • produce a database of existing policies and legislation,
  • analyse case studies of the integration of mineral and land use planning,
  • prepare guidelines on how to link land use and mineral policies and practices, and
  • to ensure knowledge exchange among relevant stakeholders.

As part of this project, we would like to invite you to take part in a forum and workshop attended by international experts from Sweden, Austria and other countries. We will be discussing how to best reconcile mining interests with land use planning.
