Here is a link to an article on my National Geographic blog regarding
"The Eden Project" -- an environmental education effort focused on mining in Cornwall UK which just celebrated a decade last year and is facing some new challenges (and opportunities):
Also, I am pleased to report the following news: I will be moving to the
University of Queensland, Australia in July to direct the Centre for
Social Responsibility in Mining. I am honored and humbled by the
confidence placed in me by UQ. My current emails will continue to be
reachable since I will also retain my tenure in Vermont (on extended
leave of absence -- one of the luxuries of a tenured full professorship in American academia :)
Here is the web link to the press release from UQ:
The work of the institute for environmental diplomacy and security which I started at UVM two years ago will continue with Dr. Rycki Maltby as director and I will help as needed ex officio with ongoing projects.
I look forward to exploring new prospects for collaboration with many of you via CSRM.
