Water & Coltan (VR/360)
SDG 1: No Poverty • 52m
Water & Coltan deals with the consequences of mining on landscape and communities in West Germany and DR Congo.

Two sides of one and the same violent phenomenon: an extractivist approach to natural and human resources with long-term consequences for the environment and society.
