Extractive industries — mining, forestry, fishing, oil/gas — offer the promise of economic growth and the peril of environmental degradation. By shining a light on extractive industries, investigative environmental journalism can inform communities, hold businesses accountable and catalyze better decisions by governments. But investigative reporting can be expensive, difficult and dangerous. Join us June 10 to hear from leading reporters whose powerful investigations have increased transparency about extractive industries in the Americas. You will see inspiring examples of investigations into logging, mining and fishing and walk away with tips for staying safe while staying true to the story.
