Treasures of the Deep: Life and Rocks Webinar Recording

The Treasures of the deep: life and rocks which was a deep-sea mining webinar held on the 12th January 2021, co-hosted by Whale Wise, DOSI and the University of Edinburgh, in partnership with iAtlantic, One Ocean Hub and ATLAS.

Moderated by Professor Murray Roberts, the webinar sought to bring the issue of deep-sea mining for minerals to public consciousness through introducing the process, laws and reasoning behind such activities, as well as considering the likely impacts from both an ecological and societal perspective. Furthermore, by convening a panel of experts with broad skills, knowledge and opinions, this webinar addressed the question of whether deep-sea mining is truly necessary, and at what cost.
