SAVE THE DATE: Minamata Online Season 2

15 juil 2021

In the run-up to the fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP-4), Minamata Online returns to support government officials, scientists, NGOs and other stakeholders of the international mercury community. Click here for the provisional calendar of online events.

The sessions of Season 2 will start on July 22 with a webinar on “Global change and biogeochemical mercury cycling”. These digital series remain arranged according to three streams: implementation support and review, mercury science, and COP-4 preparations. Originally conceived by the Secretariat of the Minamata Convention as a way to continue strengthening networks during the COVID-19 pandemic by assisting its Parties and key constituencies through online means, Minamata Online is a series of digital engagement designed to further clarify the Convention's provisions, as well as policy and scientific aspects.

Season 2 also responds to the valuable feedback from the over 1,700 participants that took part in last year’s presentations, Q&A sessions and panel discussions. The sessions are 1-1.5 hours long, some of which will be held twice on the same day to accommodate different time zones. Each session will be announced individually, and registration will be available on the Minamata Convention website.
