Global Outreach & Awareness Raising

IPEN has worked, since its inception, to promote the need for sound chemicals management among public interest, non-governmental organizations (NGOs). IPEN’s global outreach and awareness-raising projects and campaigns are developed in partnership with its Participating Organizations and are designed to help NGOs:

  • Effectively leverage existing knowledge and tools
  • Develop and implement chemicals policy agreements on-the-ground
  • Generate information and/or data that advances national chemical policies
  • Access expert input on technical, scientific, and policy matters
  • Access non-technical, educational information about chemicals in multiple languages
  • Strengthen relationship and collaborations with other NGOs and public interest, health and labor sectors. 

Campaigns catalyzed by IPEN include the:

SAICM Global Outreach Campaign;

Honoring Minamata Campaign;

and the

Toxics-Free Rio + 20 Campaign.
