The mining industry is under greater pressure to demonstrate that it can extract raw materials in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. The Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA) places particular emphasis on the participation of mining-affected communities and respect for the rights of indigenous communities. Is this just another fig leaf for the industry to continue as before, or are there real chances to be able to implement the Right To Say No – not only for indigenous people?

However, one challenge is that communities can also articulate and implement their own alternatives. To this end, the feminist organization WoMin supports community activists, especially women, to organize themselves and to have access to information and knowledge. In our online event, we will highlight and discuss these perspectives and approaches.
