Delegates from around the world are coming to Sudbury to talk about mining and the environment.

The 6th Mining and Environment 2015 International Conference from June 20th to 25th will see delegates explore mine, land and waterway rehabilitation sites here in Sudbury.

Peter Beckett is a biology professor at Laurentian University and co-chair of the event…he says one of the areas to be highlighted will be the re-greening effort here in Sudbury, renowned around the world.

The first conference was held here in Sudbury back in 1995.
