Indico.UN has been experiencing performance issues with some features since today’s upgrade at noon. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work diligently to resolve these issues.

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.

Practices involving chemical, toxic and polluting substances should not only be based on the best available science, their use should simply be avoided. Alternative techniques are often available, and more numerous than often thought. So why is it so difficult to advance these alternative techniques, which could considerably improve the protection of human rights?

Taking place ahead of the 5th session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM5), the discussion will highlight why it is difficult to advance these alternative techniques, which could considerably improve the protection of human rights, and ensure a just transition to secure sustainable, safe and healthy environment, workplaces and society.

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