Finnish-Zambian co-creation journey in Lumwana, Zambia 17.-19.5.2013 Featured

Rapidly changing world and global markets create various challenges, such as inequality, environmental and energy issues.

The Global Mining Industry is one of the big players able to provide positive influence for social and economic development through job and entrepreneurship creation and poverty reduction. However, to be successful in development of sustainable communities we need to look to the future, beyond valuable metals, and ensure joint long term development of culture, commerce and competence.

Zambian-Finnish co-development of mine-host-communities was first time discussed between Barrick Lumwana’s supported Lumwana Community Business Association and Human Security Finland early 2013, and soon after it was decided to organize multi-disciplinary workshops at May 2013 in Lumwana area of Solwezi District, Zambia in May 2013. The ‘Finnish-Zambian co-creation journey in Lumwana’ was supported by Finnish and Zambian authorities and managed by Barrick Lumwana Mine, Lumwana Community Business Association and Human Security Finland.
