At our 3rd Resisting Mining Book Club, we launched a new children’s book – Droplet and Wagtail’s Tailings Tale!

Recorded on 7 July 2021

Join us as we launch Droplet & Wagtail’s Tailings Tale! Originally published in Galician as A Mina Contamina, the story uncovers the consequences of pollution from mining, and encourages adults and children to become an active part of the solution to problems caused by extractivism.

This book received the United Nations University 2019 RCE Award for Innovative Projects on Education for Sustainable Development as an “Outstanding Flagship Project” for its role in contributing to SDG15: Life on Land.

We will be introducing the book, screening a puppet show adaptation of the story, and explaining how the story can be used in an educational setting.
