Weekly GOXI: Grab Your Camera!-Secrets of the Tiika Tree-Summer School-Jobs-More...


A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Are you on the road? in the field? in a shaft? Freeze that moment because, coming soon, you could win a prize in the GOXI Photo Share. Stay tuned. If you have a 'Tiika' tree in your backyard, you may be sitting on millions--at least according to folklore of a community disappointed in the cessation of exploration activity and convinced that sweet oil flows just beneath the surface. Beatrice explains.

Merrick Hoben shares lessons that might have helped the exploration company manage the expectations of the community.

After five years of research, Custers presents his new book to GOXI.

Emma Tarant Tayou invites you to school.

Jaff Bamanjo shares a case study in the Kimberley Process.

And Dr. Massawe urges African countries to collaborate.

If you're in London, be sure to check out Peru Support Group's event on March 4.
