You can become part of the solution in #GenderAndMining! Join the 2021 edition of the Massive Open Online Course on Gender and Mining Governance

Gender & Mining Governance

This free course will take place from September 13 to October 10, 2021. This MOOC is a platform to develop skills & capacities in evaluating the impact of mining projects on communities, with a particular emphasis on women, including recommendations on eliminating gender-based violence in mining-affected communities. The MOOC will be facilitated in English, Spanish and French. 

The 2020 edition of the MOOC was attended by 1,390 participants from 90 countries. According to a course survey, 97.5% of graduates reported they will use knowledge generated from the course to influence mining governance going forward.

The MOOC is co-facilitated by the Environmental Governance Programme (EGP), the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals, and Sustainable Development (IGF), and UNDP's Learning for Nature Programme. The EGP is a joint initiative of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and UNDP supporting countries to integrate environmental and human rights protection into the governance of the mining sector.
