Resisting Resource Wars
Europe continues to increase its consumption of the world’s resources at the expense of the rest of the planet. Come and hear first hand from international speakers about how cotton growing, metal mining and dam building in Africa and South America have a detrimental effect on local communities and the environment, as well as finding out how we can reduce Europe’s resource use.
Speakers are Dr Michael Warhurst, Coordinator of Friends of the Earth Europe’s Resources and Consumption Programme, Bruna Engel from Núcleo Amigos da Terra in Brazil and Mensah Todzro of Togo’s Les Amis de la Terre.
Tuesday 15th November, 6.30pm-8.30pm, Free
