ACTRI-Supported Ethics Forum on Societal Challenges in Seabed Mining is May 2

April 16, 2018—Given the growing demand for deep sea metals created by electronic and green technologies, scientists are faced with decisions about whether to engage in baseline and impacts research that enables development of a new extraction industry, and whether to contribute expertise to the development of environmental protections and guidelines. Discussions will address the ethical and societal challenges of exploitation in a relatively unknown realm.
