The European mining boom: rhetoric vs reality

The European Commission is ramping up plans for the expansion of mining in Europe for critical minerals and metals, as part of plans for a ‘green’ new deal. At the same time, European funding is flowing to projects aimed at securing the mining industry’s ‘social license to operate’. These projects are seeking ways to reassure EU citizens that, despite mining’s deadly global impacts, there is nothing to fear from more mining in Europe, where world class environmental and social standards are the norm. But is this true, or is it just more industry greenwashing?

Join mining-affected communities and scientists to explore this question in the first of a three-part webinar series exploring the impacts of and alternatives to EU mining expansion.

Register here(Free but registration is compulsory!)

Together we will assess the gap between the EU’s rhetoric and the realities of mining in Europe today, as well as what we can expect from a European mining boom.

We will be joined by activist and academic speakers from Finland, Spain and Northern Ireland.
