The 4IR is here. ESG-focused operations are here. And what’s more – the global pandemic is accelerating it.  

How can African mining position itself for tech growth given its’ significant young population, and how does mining attract the brightest talent in a competitive market? 

  • How should government and industry work together to ensure Africa’s mining sector doesn’t fall behind in attracting next-generation tech talent? 

  • What role does tech have to play in the Just Transition for coal-based economies like South Africa? 

  • The big debate: what is the impact on workforce and technology from the global pandemic, and does this present opportunities for growth? 

  • How has new ESG-based mandates and frameworks aligned with tech application and what are the opportunities for tech to enable ESG-centred mining? 

    The African Union (AU) Agenda 2063 is a blueprint to support the continent’s accelerated growth, tech transformation, and to drive the benefits of a digitised economy. The AU agenda is aligned to South Africa’s own National Development Plan (NDP) 2030 vision of transforming the country into an inclusive and innovative digital society.
