Plenary: Critical Ecosystems vs Critical Minerals


Critical Ecosystems vs Critical Minerals

We are honoured to be co-hosting with the Centre for Climate Justice a plenary session in coordination with the North American Congress for Conservation Biology: Celebrating Diversity in Conservation from Summit to Sea.

We will hear from leading researchers and movement leaders on the tensions that are emerging between climate and biodiversity in critical minerals mining, and under what conditions critical minerals can be produced in ways that safeguard biodiversity and the rights of communities while meeting the needs for essential climate solutions. Panelists include Justina Ray, Cristina Dorador, Bill McKibben, Mary Maje, and Linda McDonald with Naomi Klein serving as moderator.

Tuesday, June 25, 6:30-8:00 p.m.

The Great Hall, The Nest, UBC Vancouver Campus
