SLCAlliance Workshop on the Revision of the SLCA Guidelines

We are glad to announce that an SLCAlliance workshop will be held on September 12-14th 2018 at the University of G. D’Annunzio in Pescara, Italy – back–to-back with the 6th International SLCA Seminar!

The workshop will focus on the revision of the SLCA Guidelines, providing a unique opportunity for a face-to-face meeting for members of the SLCA community involved – or wanting to get involved – in the update of the 2009 UNEP-SETAC Guidelines. All contributors are welcome! The work will focus on discussing and building upon the first revised draft, which is currently being developed by colleagues in the community.

Registration process

To register for the workshop, please send an email to contact@social-lca.org.

Please note that this workshop is not part of the official program for the S-LCA conference, but organized separately by the Social LC Alliance, and that the registration and payment are completely separated. The cost for the workshop will be in the range of 100 Euros. This amount will cover food expenses (two lunches, one dinner and coffee breaks). This amount will be payable in cash during the first day of the 6th Seminar, or on September 12th at 2:30pm.

Location

University of G. D’Annunzio in Pescara is kindly offering its meeting rooms for the workshop. Exact location will be communicated in the coming months.

If you wish to get involved now in the Guidelines revision process (as a drafter or reviser), please contact Sara Russo Garrido (russo_garrido.sara@uqam.ca).
