Emerging out of 2023 Alternative Mining Indaba (AMI2023) under the theme “A just energy transition: Unlocking Community Potential and Participation”, the forum reiterated the resolve that “people first, not profits”. A steadfast commitment to a true human-centred society with fundamental traditions of sharing. We committed ourselves to action, and to more solution-oriented strategies in transforming the structural inequalities characterising extractive industry on the African continent. The AMI2023 called for resolute action against the structural gender imbalances and the skewed gender relations inherent in mining economies.

The 2024 Alternative Mining Indaba is anticipated to accelerate this call, with a positive response to the question of inclusivity and firmly place the feminist agenda within the progressive discourse.
