The social licence experts, Futureye, will provide practical insights to its long experience in de-risking project approvals and implementation by developing sound social licence strategies that reduce political risk through either eliminating or mitigating activism risk.

This webinar will explore how a social licence approach can futureproof your project.

  • Understand what social licence is
