We are pleased to announce the launch of SafePla.net, the new website of the UN Safe Planet Campaign.
Safe Planet is the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and UN Food and Agricultural Organization-led global public awareness and outreach campaign for ensuring the safety of human health and the environment against hazardous chemicals and wastes.
Safe Planet promotes awareness-raising initiatives among all levels of society, from Government, industry and educational institutions, to community-led initiatives, grassroots organizations, and the decisions of individual households and consumers.
Safe Planet strives to trigger a domino effect among diverse public and private organizations including from civil society that conduct outreach on behalf of the campaign, in order to raise global awareness of chemicals and waste issues and the solutions offered by instruments and practices of sound chemicals management.
The SafePla.net website captures this diversity of actors working for responsibility on hazardous chemicals and waste through a rich display of images, short videos, poetry and feature articles.
Past and future Safe Planet events with links to the campaign’s partners around the globe are showcased, as well as statements of responsibility by Safe Planet Campaign’s growing list of international Supporters.
The website was developed by Friends of Safe Planet, the volunteer support group of the campaign. It was designed by students from Charles University, Czech Republic, working in cooperation with the secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions.
We invite you to join us in celebrating the launch of the Safe Planet Campaign website at an informal reception at International Environment House I, Room 3, on Thursday, 16th of June, beginning at 4 p.m.
