This is the first joint session of the mining SDG Booster for Finnish and Zambian participants. Please notice that only registered participants are invited to join. More info below.

Does your company, academic institution or NGO have products or services that could be used in the mining industry, for example to ensure sustainable production chains, train staff or for digitalization? Are you interested in learning about the market opportunities in Zambia, meeting partner candidates from Finland and Zambia and drafting ideas for joint business? Join us at the digital SDG Booster, starting in April 2021!

The SDG Booster is organized by Finnpartnership together with Business Finland, Mining Finland, The Finnish Embassy in Lusaka and the AGS program (Accelerated Growth for Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Zambia). In practice, the SDG Booster is a set of consecutive joint workshops where we delve into challenges gathered from the Zambian markets, draft solutions to the challenges based on the products and services of the participants, and build cooperation, consortia and new business. The workshops are facilitated by leading experts, and the organizers can support the projects that are created through their financial and other services.

The SDG Booster is intended not only for organizations that are already active in the mining industry, but also for companies, academic institutions and NGOs whose services could be used to ensure sustainable means of production, training staff and to help digitalize the industry.

The SDG Booster will begin on April 27th, 2021 with a joint meeting between the Finnish and Zambian participants. After this initial meeting, two workshops (May 12th and June 2nd) for the drafting of solutions and joint projects will be arranged. The participants are expected to join all three sessions if possible. The entire SDG Booster will be arranged digitally.
