Communication with communities needs to occur so that everyone is in the loop about how the future of work is changing. Many communities might not be aware that mining (along with many other sectors) is moving towards more AI and automation. No one wants to be blindsighted so we need to keep everyone in the loop about emerging technologies and changes in the sectors so that all can be prepared for the change.

We need to create more training and upskilling opportunities for workers and people in these remote mining communities. The option for upskilling needs to be there, whether it's skills to continue work in mining or opportunities to learn alternative skills to help find new employment.

Basic computer literacy and coding skills are going to be important but we have to make sure these areas have access to internet and computers to begin with...
