VIDEO: Session 3: Sustainability, Resource Extraction, and Social License to Operate
Martz Winter Symposium (1st: 2014: Boulder, Colo.)
This session will discuss the growing discussion of the "social license to operate" concept, as used in natural resources development, including hard rock mining, and oil and gas development. The topic will examine carefully ongoing conflicts in the United States regarding local control over shale gas development and examine the perspective of American Indian tribes as to their concerns over a lack of a "shared value" perspective.
