Due to the ongoing worldwide challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 9th Annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights will be held virtually from 16–18 November 2020.
Reflecting on the current global situation and the renewed emphasis on the need to prevent harm to people and the planet resulting from business activities, the prevention of business-related human rights abuses will be the central theme of the 2020 Forum. The Forum agenda will seek to reinforce the message that strengthening prevention — by learning from good practices and when things have gone wrong, as well as by addressing systemic gaps — can help to build a sustainable future for people and the planet.
Registration is free and open to all. The Working Group hopes that using virtual platforms will extend the global reach of the Forum and open it up to even more stakeholders. You may register for the event here.
