Side Event @ICCM5: Transition towards safe and healthy employment in the chemicals & waste sectors – sharing good practices towards a gender-just & toxic-free environment

Sound management of chemicals and (plastic) waste is essential to a gender-just transition and to promote safe, decent and healthy employment. This event will engage the participants into an interactive, fast-paced discovery of realities on the ground and feminist actions to advance a gender-just green transition, away from harmful chemicals and waste, towards sustainable and healthier alternatives. 

Through the format of a World Café participants will actively engage in 3 discussions under the guidance of a civil society expert and government representative / institution expert, to explore the issues, solutions and legislation to guide us to safe, decent and healthy employment.
