The ‘Rosia Montana Activist Social Forum’ (#RMForum) takes place during FânFest, the hay festival of Rosia Montana, the biggest multi-art festival in Romania. 2014 marks the 3rd edition of the #RMForum, which is scheduled from the 12th to the 16th of August, and the 9th edition of the festival.
The fight against cyanide based gold mining and corruption often touches upon other initiatives, campaigns and struggles around Europe. #RMForum wants to unite these energies, discussions and calls for action in a social forum open to all the participants of FânFest during more than 30 workshops and with 35 speakers from 10 different countries around 5 central themes:
1) Ban cyanide & mining
2) Citizen journalism
3) Campaigns and social movements
4) Campaign boot-camp
5) Heritage conservation/restoration & sustainable development
