[GreenYes] California Chemical Policy Symposium, 3/16-17, 2006, Oakland, CA

Apologies for Cross-Postings

March 16-17, 2006
Elihu Harris State Building
Oakland, CA

Delegation of the European Commission to the US, Washington, DC

This symposium will build on a series of meetings over the past year
that have explored integrated chemical policy initiatives including
the European Union's REACH initiative; green chemistry; and, more
broadly, comprehensive environmental planning and investment
approaches at the state, national and international levels.

Who should attend? Critical policy-makers, business
leaders, nonprofit advocates, scientists and academics.
What is the purpose? To examine the feasibility of a California
statewide chemical policy, and create an ongoing roundtable of
stakeholders in a co-operative endeavor to explore the potential for
a comprehensive approach to a healthier and cleaner environment.
What will participants do? Examine existing state and federal
chemical policies and identify the barriers and opportunities
inherent in each approach. Panels led by policy-makers, labor, health
and environmental nonprofits, and industry will explore the potential
for a comprehensive policy and define what a Statewide California
Chemical Policy should include. The panels will be followed by
breakout sessions at the end of day one and a policy roundtable on day two.

To facilitate discussion, capacity will be limited and a broad
diversity of attendees will be sought from California primarily, and
the Pacific Northwest. Stakeholders and individuals from the State
of New York, who have indicated interest in a bi-coastal
collaboration to explore comprehensive chemical policies in each
state, are also invited.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you!
