23 October 2017 – 27 October 2017 all-day

“The Week of Peoples Mobilisation in Geneva (23-27 October 2017) coincides with the Third Session of the the Intergovernmental Working Group mandated to develop a binding UN Treaty on Transnational Corporations and Human Rights and other Business Enterprise. As in 2014, 2015 and 2016, we are back in Geneva in order to continue pressure governments to keep the process of building the Binding Treaty moving forward. But more than that: The Global Campaign is bringing concrete proposals of contents for the Binding Treaty that will be shared widely during the Week.

What are we planning?

  • At the UN Square: we will launch the Week of Peoples Mobilisation jointly with representatives of the World Parlamentarian Forum, affected communities, movements, trade uninos and organisations.  We will also organise 9 workshops under the Tent of the Global Campaign.
  • Inside the UN: as in 2014, 2015 and 2016, there will be coordinated participation inside the IGWG Plenary, where we will be seeking in particular testimonies of affected communities, both in Side Events and in the focussed advocacy with governments.”
