Gilded or Green: How Gold Impacts the Amazon and Why We Should Care
October 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The impact of gold mining on the Amazon rainforest is immense and complex: local and global demand for gold intersect with humanitarian and environmental crises. Substantive and transformational change of the global gold supply chain is non-negotiable. By building relationships between seemingly unlikely partners while committing to appreciating nuance and practicing empathy, we bridge the gap between understanding and action. In this panel, part of a new network-building initiative called Amazon Gold Working Group, we will explore perspectives – from lived experience to informed areas of study – to carve a path toward cleaner gold and an Amazon free of destructive mining.
Registration is free and includes access to an online screening of the River of Gold movie at a time of your choosing, October 18-29, 2023. Screening information will be shared after you register.
