EI Academy has a new online series "How to Negotiate with Companies"

Posted on June 6, 2016 at 21:17 0 Comments

EI Academy has a new series on how communities can get better, smarter deals from extractive companies. The 12-part series will be released every week on GOXI over the summer and includes information and strategy on how to get the best environmental protections, legal advice, government relations, financial benefits, and land rights possible. Communities should get what they deserve!

Do you have any stories about community-company negotiation?
