COLD, VIBRATION, AIRBORNE EXPOSURES AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC INFLUENCES IN MINING

Minimizing social and economical risks

 

In this part we reflect through the socio-economic framework to see if there is tension between the inhabitants and authorities of Sodankylä and the representatives of Kevitsa mine concerning the reshaping of the mine area socially, physically, culturally, emotionally and historically. Lapland UAS is responsible of this particular question, which is under inspection in the socio-economic part of the MineHealth project. The research is carried out through statistics, questionnaires and interviews. Furthermore, the question of social and ecological diversity, physical, psychosocial and cultural reshaping of environment as well as the challenges of local multicultural community is under inspection.

We also reflect to see if there is any noticeable conflict between ecologically orientated health politics and growth-based welfare politics (vs. the discussion about green gross domestic product, economically sustainable welfare, humane development, sustainable society, happy years of life and indexes of happy earth, authentic development indicators, ecological footprints, national happiness accounting and gross national happiness).
