Extractive Industries: Blessing or Curse?

by PhilLee — last modified Sep 14, 2009 05:34 PM

Friends of the Earth Europe are hosting a one day conference in Brussels looking at the environmental and social Impacts of the oil and gas Industry.

The Conference aims at presenting solutions and developing policies that will result in reducing greenhouse gas emissions (for the oil and gas industry), conserving energy, reducing environmental pressure across chains of production (fossil fuels) and making sustainable use of natural resources (oil and gas).

It will bring together representatives of civil society from European and developing countries including communities affected by the industry operations, the European Commission, the European Parliament, industry, international organisations and the media.

Speakers include the Friends of the Earth International Chair, Nnimmo Bassey, our economic justice coordinator Paul de Clerk and many more.
