Still want to watch the Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference replays? Everyone should attend! Pay what you can. Donations are great, but we can't achieve change without you.
This session presents findings from Pact and the University Delaware’s ‘ASM-SDG Policy Assessment’ – the first review mapping positive and negative relationships between artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) and all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals simultaneously. Following a presentation, the authors of the assessment, Jorden de Haan, Kirsten Dales, and Dr James McQuilken, are then accompanied by guest experts Professor Nellie Mutemeri and Emily Achor who will share their viewpoints on how the SDGs can be mobilized in support of artisanal miners found at the start of many global jewelry supply chains. The session concludes with an open discussion and Q&A with the audience to explore how our jewelry can help achieve the SDGs.
