RIC welcomes new activist
Lismores Rainforest Information Centre held a gathering last week to welcome Mineral Policy Institute director Techa Beaumont (left), who is now based at the RIC premises. She is pictured with RIC director Ruth Rosenhek (centre) and the Total Environment Centres Northern Rivers campaigner Valerie Thompson. Valerie is taking a break to make time for her future baby, and the gathering was an opportunity for local environmental groups to network and also say a big thank you to Valerie for her passion and commitment in tackling tricky environmental issues.
The Mineral Policy Institute, formed in 1995, has a focus on the prevention of environmentally and socially destructive mining, minerals and energy projects. For more information visit www.mpi.org.au.
