EO-MINERS will use the trialogue to facilitate and improve interaction between the mineral extractive industry, the society and their governments. A trialogue is “an interchange and discussion of ideas among three groups having different origins, philosophies, principles, etc.” (Webster's New World College Dictionary).
The three groups involved in the EO-MINERS trialogue are the industry, the government and the civil society. It is meant to contribute to reconciliation of interests among the three groups involved in order to reach common agreement upon actions to deal with environmental and social impacts of mining activities. Besides, the trialogue enables to reinforce the project idea and outcomes and confirm its usefulness.
