Civil Society Conference in Preparation for the ICCM5
22nd September 2023 // 3 pm, half day // Bonn

From 25th to 29th of September, the World Chemical Conference, ICCM5, will take place in Bonn, Germany. Prep-meetings will start the week before.

Please note that there will be an exciting additional event, giving a platform and voice to NGOs: we, as a group of German Civil society organizations will host a half-day Civil Society Conference in Bonn on 22 September.

The event will include a high-level panel discussion open for CSOs, delegates, media, etc., followed by a workshop and an interactive discussion session for CSOs only. The CSO part offers additional opportunities to exchange and shape our positions and ideas before the negotiations will start.

The half-day event will start at 3 pm (CEST) and ends with a joint dinner. You all are warmly invited to join in and be part of this event! Join in, make this event an additional booster for the then-upcoming week of negotiation, and support our collective fight for an ambitious SAICM-Beyond-2020- Framework.

The Civil Society Conference will take place in the rooms of the Federal Ministry for the Environment in Bonn. Entry is free. Further information will follow soon.
