Course/Workshop Description: Industrial challenges can be effectively addressed with the help of academic, government, community and private sector partners. Local industries do not need to work in isolation in developing and implementing remediation measures. Sudbury, Ontario, Canada is a model for the value of having a very high degree of community buy-in and community participation.

 

The Environmental Remediation course and field trips are multidisciplinary, integrating environmental and social sciences to guide participants through an overview of the history of damage and environmental recovery of the mining impacted landscape around Sudbury. The application of established and new innovative techniques in remediation, soil rehabilitation, pollutant neutralization and sequestration, biomining, and the creation of novel ecosystems is reviewed and critically examined. The course features current and ongoing research initiatives and outlines ongoing challenges while making the science and methods transferable to other damaged sites globally.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn through a multidisciplinary investigation of Sudbury historical environmental degradation and decades of innovation how we have restored terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and use remediation strategies in managing mining impacted environments.
