Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA) Deadline: 1 July 2019
Are you a paralegal or lawyer working on environmental justice and corporate accountability in Africa’s mining sector? Do you or a member of your organization have a story that deserves profiling internationally on business and human rights in the mining sector? All you need is a smart phone for your work to be showcased at the Alternative Mining Indaba to be held in Cape Town next year February 2020. ZELA will support your participation at the Alternative Mining Indaba so that you get to share your story and meet other paralegals and lawyers working on similar issues.
To become an entrant, capture a short video on your phone showing how your work is advancing environmental justice in the mining sector. We know a lot of work is being done in Africa on resolving injustices and demanding corporate accountability in the extractives sector, often without recognition, and we hope to have these stories shared widely. Please submit a 500 worded summary of your case story together with your video to firstname.lastname@example.org and copy email@example.com clearly marked the Case Compendium by the 1st of July, 2019.
The articles must be drawn in either of the following areas, Southern, East and West African Regions.
