Out of Respect - The Tahltan, Mining and the Seven Questions to Sustainability

By IISD on January 23, 2004

The Tahltan Mining Symposium was convened in April 2003 to (1) review the relationship between the Tahltan people, their land and the mining industry; and (2) build a strategy to guide that relationship in the future. Seeking a win-win outcome, and guided by the Seven Questions to Sustainability (7QS) Assessment Framework, the participants considered past, present and potential future conditions as a foundation for ensuring positive outcomes for the Tahltan people and their territory in the years to come. Out of Respect describes the process and documents the resulting strategy.
