The Researching Social Theories, Resources, and Environment (ReSToRE) International Summer School brought together 42 early-career scientists and practitioners from geoscience and social science backgrounds from around the globe to tackle the question "ow can we sustainably supply future generations with earth resources?"

iCRAG, The International Union of Geological Sciences and Geological Survey Ireland were the organising sponsors of ReSToRE, which was run under the patronage of UNESCO. Sponsorship came from BHP, Boliden, Rio Tinto, Teck, with additional financial support received from the Irish Research Council and UCD College of Business. The summer school program also involved experts from Cornell University (US), Cardiff University (UK), Plymouth University (UK), Newcastle University London (UK), Nottingham University Business School (UK), University of Strathclyde (UK), University of Groningen (Netherlands), Shinglespit Consultants Inc. and PetraScience Consultants.

I joined the summer school as a reporter to capture key questions, messages and outcomes from the week. Working with Dr Anthea Lacchia (iCRAG at UCD) we aimed to maximise the impact of the summer school, and so spread the ReSToRE messages and outcomes far and wide.
