Elena Solis

Elena Solis has worked as an environmental lawyer, activist, researcher and writer since 2010. She is presently the head of mining in Ecologistas in Acción, a Spanish grassroots confederation consisting of 300 environmental groups. Since 2014, she has been campaigning and working to take legal action against indiscriminate and speculative prospecting and licensing of new mining projects in Spain; projects which are posing a serious risk to the environment and the people living near them. She is interested in the interconnection between the acceleration of mining projects in the Global South and Global North and the world of financial economy.
