Virtual round table: "Turning Down the Heat: Can We Mine Our Way Out of the Climate Crisis?"
Tuesday 17 November 2020 - 03:00pm - Tuesday 17 November 2020 05:00pm

Please join us for a virtual round table looking at where are we at, one year after the conference: a report-back and conversation with MiningWatch staff and special guests from around the world.

Following up on the conference "Turning Down the Heat” we will present the conference report and host a round table addressing three related themes:
  • updates from extractive regions (Canada, Chile, southern Africa);
  • reflections on how pressure is being/can be built to (a) reduce energy consumption and demand for minerals and metals, and (b) impose stricter conditions on extraction (FPIC/right to say 'no', no-go zones, safeguards etc.); and
  • perspectives on how efforts to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and build a Green Recovery/Green New Deal are working towards global equity – or not.
