Following up on the conference “Turning Down the Heat: Can We Mine Our Way Out of the Climate Crisis?”, we will present the conference report and host a virtual round table addressing three related themes:

  1. updates from extractive regions (Canada, Chile, southern Africa);
  2. 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
  3. 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.

Our special guests for this round table will be:

  • Kate McKenna, The Leap (Toronto) – moderator
  • Anjali Appadurai, Sierra Club BC (Vancouver) – Climate justice, Green New Deals, extractivism, and the renewable energy transition
  • Andrew Whitmore, Deep Sea Mining Campaign (London, UK) – Deep sea mining and the renewable energy transition
  • Ramón Balcázar, Observatorio Plurinacional de Salares Andinos (Chile) – Lithium extraction in Latin America
  • Trusha Reddy, WoMin (South Africa) – Conditions for mining and the right to say ‘no’
  • Our own Ugo Lapointe – Conditions on mining for the renewable energy transition in Quebec/BC/Canada
