Impact monitoring for artisanal miners and rights-based training for migrant workers

This month, we share exciting news regarding the ASM Grand Challenge competition hosted by Conservation X Labs. Each year, global innovators are invited to design solutions to transform artisanal mining. In a time when maintaining the status quo in commodities sourcing practices and risk monitoring comes with environmental and human rights complications, competitions like the ASM Grand Challenge provide an outlet for ideation and collaboration between individuals, organizations, and institutions to generate innovative solutions to age-old problems within artisanal mining.

We are also excited to announce our collaboration with Quizrr in the MOVE initiative that will  give migrant workers in Thailand access to rights-based training, education and feedback channels to disclose working conditions. Read on for more updates!
