On the sidelines of 54th Session of the Human Rights Council (HRC54), this year’s Toxic Free Talks will take place from 20 to 22 September — three days of conferences and discussions, highlighting the work of the UN Special Rapporteur on toxics and human rights, and of organizations in the struggle for the right to live in a toxic-free environment.

In this panel discussion, we will listen to testimonies of peasants who practice agroecology in different regions and to the arguments of the Special Rapporteur on toxics and human rights and an expert of the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems. Furthermore, we will discuss specific legal and policy measures that governments can adopt and implement at diverse governance levels, to phase out agrotoxics, facilitate a just transition to agroecology, and advance the transformation of agro-industrial food systems.

The event will take place in a hybrid format, at the Palais des Nations and online. Participants joining online can register through Webex.
