2024 WMAN Biennial Conference

November 14, 2024


Western Mining Action Network is excited to announce that the 2024 Biennial Conference will be held in person this year in Montreal, Quebec. Titled Mining Justice in the Climate Crisis (Justice minée en temps de crise climatique), the Conference will convene 150-200 people from mining-affected communities and allies working in legal aid, scientific support, and environmental NGO's for cross-cultural knowledge sharing; elevating Indigenous voices; leadership development; and training in environmental advocacy and democratic organizing.

With support from the local grassroots group Coalition Québec meilleure mine (Quebec Coalition for a better mining framework) the Biennial Conference will increase awareness of mining in Quebec that is threatening local communities, while addressing the social and environmental impacts of mining across the US and Canada. The Conference is for frontline communities affected by mining and the allies working with them.

The Indigenous Caucus will meet on Wednesday November 13.

The Conference will be held from Thursday November 14 - Saturday November 16, with an optional day Field Trip on Sunday November 17.

Program, schedule, and registration details to follow.
