> by Development Studies/ University of Helsinki and Siemenpuu Foundation!

> dialogues, first a working group on activist experiences and 
> strategies, and then a plenary panel for larger audience on

> *Facebook event*: XXXX
> *1 Working Group
> **Moving Beyond Extractivism: Dialogue on activist experiences and 
> strategies***
> This working group creates a dialogue space for activists that try to 
> build or support movements that challenge extractivist fossil 
> capitalism and aim to make a post-extractivist future possible. The 
> session connects discussions and efforts striving for 
> post-extractivism and post-consumerism. Thus far the critique of these 
> two ends of extractivist economic processes have developed rather 
> separately. The anti-consumerist campaigns in the affluent countries 
> and the resistance struggles in the resource frontiers especially in 
> the Global South would need to come together for a powerful 
> re-imaging, articulation and mobilisation for a transformation to take 
> place. The participants will also discuss the relevance of 
> world-ecology perspective to their own work.
> The following activist presentations lay the ground for the dialogue 
> with the other activist participants:
> ·Resisting mining projects in Lapland, Finland by *Riikka Karppinen*
> ·Towards post-extractivism? Struggles against mining in Nicaragua by 
> *Outi Hakkarainen*, Kepa association
> ·Oil struggles in Emohua and Port Harcourtin in River's States, 
> Nigeria by *Tuula Pulkki*, WANA association
> ·Exiting the plutocene, by *Marko Ulvila*, post-growth study group
> ·Minerals as commons, by *Ruby van der Wekken*, Siemenpuu Foundation / 
> Oma Maa
> The contributors to the overall discussions in this working group 
> include:
> ·*Khu Khu Ju, *a land right activist from Myanmar (Land in Our Hands 
> network, Transnational Institute)
> ·*Kyi Phyo*, an energy activist and Myanmar coordinator of the Mekong 
> Energy and Ecology Network (MEE Net)
> ·*Uddhab Pyakurel, *a member of International Council of World Social 
> Forum and an activist in South Asian Dialogues on Ecological Democracy 
> ·*Soumitra Ghosh*, a social activist and independent researcher based 
> in North Bengal, India
> **
> *2 Plenary panel
> Moving beyond extractivism: resistance, activism, alternatives*
> In an effort to connect World-Ecology discussions more closely with 
> movement building of plenary session is devoted to a conversation 
> between activist-scholars and activists. The plenary session will 
> include an exploration of the following questions:
>   * How to move beyond extractivism of various sorts (from extractive
>     industries to the extrativism expressed in the new ‘bioeconomy’
>     and financialization of the economy)?
>   * How to support and unite struggles of resistance across various
>     resource and commodity frontiers?
>   * How to bridge scholarly and activist work on extractivism?
>   * How to imagine and build alternative futures beyond extractivism?
> These questions will be approached with special attention given to 
> strategies of collective organising in the resource frontiers and 
> particularly in South and Southeast Asian contexts. Two of our 
> speakers come from Myanmar which serves as a paradigmatic resource 
> frontier which after its recent opening is experiencing a rush into 
> its rich resources and a boom of extractive projects.
> Speakers include activist scholar *Larry Lohmann* (UK), climate 
> justice and forest activist *Soumitra Ghosh *(India), ecological 
> democracy activist *Uddhab Pyakurel*(Nepal), water and energy activist 
> *Kyi Phyo* (Myanmar), land right activist *Khu Khu Ju* (Myanmar) and 
> de-growth activist *Marko Ulvila* (Finland). We will also get a 
> message from a Sámi artist, activist and scholar *Pauliina Feodoroff*.
