Looking at the relationship between these issues and the extractive industries, this event will use short videos and live performances to highlight community struggles and showcase efforts for alternative forms of development. The event hopes to directly address themes of corporate accountability and developmental alternatives in the build-up to the expiry of the Millenium Development goals in 2015.
