Extractivism Talks #07: “Natural Resources in the Global Paths towards Sustainability”

02.07.2024 17:00 Uhr - 19:00 Uhr

Shifting production and consumption patterns away from fossil fuels towards renewables and the growing importance of new strategic raw material resources like cobalt, lithium and rare has been quickly assuming a central role in the policy agendas of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine have exposed the vulnerabilities in global supply chains, reinforcing the urgency of more sustainable patterns of production, trade, and consumption. This roundtable aims to initiate a debate, viewed through different local, regional, and international lenses, on how decarbonisation will trigger a profound modification of current social-technological regimes, formal regulations and policies, institutions, connectivity grids, energy infrastructure and mindsets of production and consumption.
