Sponsored by United Nations Environment Programme Global Legally Binding Treaty on Mercury
 
the conference will promote discussion on some of the questions that are likely to arise in 2013 and beyond: •What form does the new UNEP Legally Binding Treaty take and what does it mean in practice? •How do we curb current mercury supply and demand? •How do we reduce emissions from human activities? •What evaluation tools do we need and is our current “tool-kit” of monitoring and modeling techniques up to the job? •What health and social effects has mercury had and how will this change in the future? •How to we deal with remediation of contaminated sites and ecosystems? •What is needed in terms of technologies and psychologies of social change? •What synergies are there with existing, impending and potential global treaties, issues and scenarios? •How do we raise our concern and action on mercury “from local to global”?
