Update on 5th IGWG Session
We are writing to urge you to register EARLY for the UN Forum on Business & Human Rights, which takes place from 25th to 27th November 2019 in Geneva.
This year, due to building work being carried out in the Palais des Nations in Geneva, the number of UN Forum participants is being capped to 2,000.
The only way to guarantee your participation is to register early. Registration is apparently approved on a first-come, first-serve basis.
FYI - The IOE is organising a joint session with Impactt (an ethical consultancy) on “Global vs local: Addressing the disconnect between State top-down measures and lived experiences on the ground” – scheduled to take place on Monday 25th November (13:30-14:45). There will be other IOE events in the margins of the UN Forum, including the business networking event in the evening on Monday 25th. More information to follow.
