Beschreibung (engl.)
“Beyond Hot Air” is an international cooperation project that will establish a dialogue-based initiative for promoting cutting-edge critical, theoretical and applied research on the mining of critical raw materials for the “green transition”, in particular in EU member states. The project will facilitate cross-sectoral and transdisciplinary dialogues across societal stakeholders, youth and Indigenous rights holders involved in – and affected by – mining operations and policy making. The aim is to analyze geological and societal perspectives on mining for the green transition, especially in the frame of the EU Green Deal, and to bring stakeholders into conversation beyond “greenwashing” and binary black & white perspectives.
Schooling and in particular educational media can represent an important space to create a common ground for open debate and constructive conversation between youth, environmental activists, and also companies and state actors. That’s why we would like address educational media to discuss the complex questions of green and “just” transition in the EU, leading eventually to more sustainable and socially accepted decision-making in the energy and mining sectors.
