Event description

Description

We invite you to this important event to kick off Rise, Resist, Renew: Alternatives to Mines and Money - a week engaging with the growing movement of alternatives coming from the Global South.

Frontline community representatives from Uganda, the Philippines and Colombia will share their struggles and successes in resisting London-linked mining companies during this all-day convergence with creative workshops.

It will be a space to learn about mining issues for the first time and for activists to discuss experiences, ideas and strategies.

Hosted by London Mining Network, War on Want and The Gaia Foundation.
