On this occasion, we invite you to join us in a dual event. Explore with us the digital space and its potential as a driver of social change as well as the scope of mining in the context of the Energy transition.

About the event

1.The role of the internet in driving social justice in 2022

ternet is a powerful tool. The wide potential for democratisation and social justice are clear, yet many of these movements have failed to develop into real social change. Paradoxically, the same tools with the potential for social justice have fuelled the very opposite. To effectively utilise the power of the internet for social justice, we must navigate these problems and understand how detrimental outcomes materialise. This session will explore the conflicting realities of the internet and offer solutions for reclaiming it as a tool for social justice.

Since its inception, this power has been recognised for its potential to drive social justice in a variety of ways. A space to bring together new or marginalised communities despite geographical boundaries; a public sphere for debate and deliberation; a means to spread information and hold power to account; and a platform for the organisation and mobilisation of incipient social movements; and various technologies enabling social change.

2.Mining metals for the energy transition

During this second session, we’ll take you on a virtual journey to visit different coal mines around Europe. If you are familiriased with our project Metals for a Green and Digital Europe, you’ll know by now that the energy transition will require far more metals than Europe can provide at this point. For this reason, we will explore how metal mining and supply chains could be a fair business for both people and the environment.
