Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Alexandre de Bastiani, I am a Masters Student at the Umeå Institute of Design, in Umeå, a city located in northern Sweden. As I am currently working on my Degree Project in collaboration with Epiroc, the leading Mining equipment manufacturer in Sweden, I am reaching the community of Mining Industry Professionals, Geologists, and other related professionals seeking more information and knowledge that will create a foundation to argue pro the future design that will be proposed.
Well, from the beginning, what am I looking for?
The topic of my project is "The Unexplored Earth - INSPIRING THE FUTURE OF EARTH EXPLORATIONS" which goal is to investigate the geological potential of our planet and the future of its exploration.
- What will we do in the long term?
- Go deeper?
- Will we mine in space?
- Stop mineral exploitation?
- What is Earth's real potential? For how long will it last?
- What about political-based measures/policies? Are they too harsh or should they be even stronger?
These and many other questions are part of my investigation and I want you to be part of this journey.
So, the first thing I need to do during the research phase is to interview professionals in the field of Geology, specialists in Exploratory Geology, academics, and engineers aiming for knowledge and insights that will, hopefully, lead me into a Future Vision of how Earth Explorations will be like in a long term future.
If you feel inspired and excited to take part of my research, please raise your hand and I will contact you and schedule a call (Skype, Zoom, or any other platform) or, if you are in Sweden, I may even meet you for a nice chat!
Please feel free to ask me question if there is something not clear.
