MEDEAS took part in the “Mining and Extractivism” conference in Granada (Spain)

The Conference “Minería y Extractivismos. Diálogo entre la academia y los movimientos sociales” was held in Granada (Spain) between 9 and 10 May 2019. Iñigo Capellán-Pérez from the University of Valladolid (UVa), MEDEAS partner, presented the results related to the mineral requirements for the transition to a renewable energy system in the talk “The mineral dependence of the energy transition” in the session “Mining”

The Conference was a very relevant event to exchange knowledge and experiences from the academia and the social movements working in these topics in Spain and South America.
