KAIROS hosts mining conference

  • April 27, 2011
Church leaders from Canada, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America will gather in Toronto for an ecumenical conference on mining from May 1-3.

Hosted by KAIROS and several of its member institutions in partnership with Norwegian Church Aid, they will be joined by indigenous partners, social partners from the Global South, Church members and agency staff.

The gathering is meant to develop alliances between leaders from the North and South in an effort to achieve mining justice around the world.

“We hope that Church leaders and faith-based organizations in Canada and in the Global South will leave the conference better able to speak about mining from a theological and ethical perspective, informed by first-hand testimonies of communities impacted by mining,” said Adiat Junaid, communications program director at KAIROS.
