About the event
This event has been postponed until 2023.
Saul Jones & Kerina Mohideen from London Mining Network.
The London Mining Network is an alliance supporting communities around the world harmed by
mining companies based in, or funded from, London. They support human rights and sustainable
development through monitoring abuse and raising awareness of indigenous and workers’ rights and
environmental damage in mining areas.
In this session Saul and Kerina will argue global justice is a necessary part in dealing with the climate
London has long been a global investment centre for the international mining industry. Vast sums of
money from high street and investment banks, pension funds and insurance companies are invested
in mining industries all around the world. However, the damaging environmental and human impact of
mining often falls on poor and indigenous communities in the Global South. Saul and Kerina will
address challenging questions around whether continued mining and extraction, particularly for the
transition to renewables, could ever be justified in light of environmental and human impacts.
