ReviRis: revitalising post-mining regions

ReviRis can make a difference!
Post-mining areas can be a potential for economic development; a frequently visited tourist destination, an oasis of wildlife, or a showcase of the mining region. They can also relate to environmental or social problems that raise concerns and even resistance to new mineral resource exploitation developments.
Revitalization, understood as a socio-economic or natural revival, has been implemented for hundreds of years before this concept entered legal systems. However, not all planned revitalisation projects are successful.
The goal of ReviRis
The aim of the workshop is to present selected examples, define and discuss success factors or reasons for failure with people dealing with the management of revitalized facilities on a daily basis. Also, a study will be conducted to rank the success and failure factors. The workshop is addressed to representatives of the mining industry, self-governments, museums, and other facilities established in post-mining areas, the R&D sector, mining enterprises, consulting companies, institutions managing funds for revitalisation, students, and all enthusiasts of mining heritage.
