Kittilä, Finland is where Europe’s biggest gold mine is located. Large-scale exploitation of natural resources is a global phenomenon that comes at a high cost to the environment. Loss of biodiversity and contamination of soil and groundwater by mining processes affect the wildlife and human beings – often indigenous peoples – living near the mines. This can result in the displacement of whole communities causing an irreversible imbalance.
