Parent/Guardian Consent Form

The parent/guardian consent form must be completed in order for any child under the age of 18 to participate in the Move Mining Next Gen program.

Parental Consent Form

The Society of Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) and its affiliates (Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration Foundation, Minerals Education Coalition, etc.) recognizes the need to ensure the welfare and safety of all young people taking part in any activity associated with our organization.

In accordance with our child protection policy we will not permit photographs, video or other images of young people to be taken without the consent of the parents or care givers. As your child will be taking part in an SME or affiliated event, we would like to ask for your consent to take photographs/videos of the event or activity that may contain images of your child. It is likely that these images may be used as:

  • a record of the activity or the event
  • in a written evaluation report of the activity or event that will be viewed by SME
  • publicity material for further activities or events on leaflets/websites/magazines/social media
  • illustrations of the activities or events in published articles
  • future grant applications

SME and its affiliates will take all steps to ensure these images are used solely for the purposes they are intended. If you become aware that these images are being used inappropriately you should inform SME immediately.
