Introduction to the workshops

Dr A. Michael WarhurstLowell Center for Sustainable Production


Aim of workshops l.jpg
Aim of workshops

  • To discuss key aspects of sustainable chemicals management

  • To focus on solutions, through identification of options for possible future discussion and investigation


Structure of workshops l.jpg
Structure of workshops

  • Each workshop has a background paper, which will be presented briefly by the author

    • The background papers are views of the author, they are not comprehensive reviews of the issue

    • The papers are intended to start the discussion in the workshops, and pose some key questions

    • The author will usually be the rapporteur

  • A facilitator will ensure that:

    • All participants are able to contribute to the discussion

    • The discussion stays focussed on solutions, and generates options

  • A note taker will record key elements of the discussion


Outcome of workshops l.jpg
Outcome of workshops

  • Workshops are not expected to reach consensus, but we hope that they will discuss a number of options

    • Some options might be mutually exclusive, others might be best done together

    • Not everyone will support every option

  • Reporting of the workshops:

    • Comments will not be attributed to individuals - “Chatham House Rules”

    • Facilitator, rapporteur and note takers will collaborate to ensure the workshop is reported fairly and accurately

    • A short summary of the discussion will be presented by the rapporteur on Friday afternoon

    • A workshop summary will be written up after the meeting, and published on the LCSP web site
