Drilling platforms, pipelines and large-scale mines cause environmental disasters, intensify social conflicts and are often associated with severe human right violations. Through the large-scale pollution of land, air and water, people lose their livelihoods and develop health problems.
We work at local, national and international levels to support communities in their struggle against these problems. We advocate an end to subsidies from publicly-funded institutions to oil, gas and mining projects. And we challenge the world's governments to redirect their support towards economic alternatives that could take us towards equitable and sustainable societies.
