Stop Mad Mining

The “Stop Mad Mining” campaign running in 2015 within the framework of the European Year of Development 2015 aims at creating the link between (over-) consumption of raw materials in Europe on the one hand, and poverty, human right violations, and environmental destruction in resource rich countries on the other hand. The goal is to sensitise and mobilise citizens, politicians and companies around the dramatic impact of our consumption patterns on the dwindling, non-renewable resources globally, and how this in turn is impacting the life of people affected by the extraction of raw materials and climate change.
