The Global Extractivisms and Alternatives Initiative

The Global Extractivisms and Alternatives Initiative (EXALT) is a new international network of scholars, activists, and policymakers dedicated to collaboration and knowledge creation around the pressing crisis stemming from extractivist policies and practices. This Initiative draws together diverse critical analyses of the phenomena of global extractivisms and the myriad alternatives being actively pursued in both theory and practice. It is the intention of this Initiative to contribute to, expand, and deepen the concept of extractivism and the role of alternatives beyond the conventional usage connected to natural resources. EXALT will host an international scientific conference "Concurrent Crises and Sustainable Futures: Global Extractivisms and Alternatives" at the University of Helsinki, City Center Campus on October 20-23, 2020. In addition to the conference the EXALT Initiative is hosting other related events throughout the year.
