Watch our ASL invitation for this event

This year Ahnan and Jennifer Moore discuss how they are advocating for just and sustainable development in their communities.

Each year on the occasion of our Annual General Meeting, we invite counterparts and collaborators from Canada and around the world to share their views on social justice, community action and positive change. It's an evening of thoughtful reflections on what people everywhere are doing to create a better world for all of us...among equals.

About our speakers

Ahnan is a Kachin activist from northern Burma, where armed conflict is still ongoing. She has been campaigning locally and internationally for 7 years for protection of local communities’ lands and livelihoods against the damaging effects of gold and jade mining, mono-crop plantations and large dams. She manages campaigns for the Kachin Development Networking Group (KDNG), a network of Kachin civil society groups conducting research on development projects including mining, plantation agriculture and hydro power, and working with local communities to find local solutions to development problems. KDNG is one of the leading activist groups against the controversial Myitsone dam project. Ahnan is also the assistant coordinator of the Burma Rivers Network, a coalition of community based groups throughout Burma working for sustainable river development in Burma.

Jennifer Moore is the Latin America Program Coordinator at MiningWatch Canada, where she works on the Guatemala/Goldcorp campaign and on supporting communities, organizations, and networks struggling with mining issues throughout the region. Jennifer is a freelance print and broadcast journalist with twelve years' experience in social justice journalism, a third of which she has gained while living and working in Ecuador.
