Safe Planet welcomes new campaign focal point Charlie Avis, BRS bids farewell to campaign co-creator Michael S. Jones

On 23 August, Safe Planet: the United Nations Campaign for Responsibility on Hazardous Chemicals and Wastes´ co-creator Michael S. Jones departed Geneva to move to Nairobi where he joins the staff of the Joint UN Development Programme-UN Environment Programme (UNDP-UNEP) Poverty-Environment Initiative.  Michael will be responsible for communications, outreach and knowledge management in the Initiative´s Poverty-Environment Facility, supporting the pro-poor sustainable development agenda globally.

Safe Planet welcomes Charlie Avis, a former Poverty-Environment Initiative Programme Officer, who has taking up the post of Public Information Officer of the Secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions, and serves as focal point of the UN Safe Planet Campaign as of 15 August. He may be reached at charles.avis@unep.org.

“Since its launch in February 2010, Safe Planet Campaign has made a major contribution to raising awareness of the challenges we face from hazardous chemicals and wastes, and the role of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions in presenting solutions to the challenges. It has also been a huge and unforgettable part of both my professional and personal life,” Michael said.

“I intend to remain active in the Campaign as a friend and advisor. I  look forward to expanding its reach within the environmental justice community I now serve in my new capacity.”

Jana Hajduchova, Friend of Safe Planet, and Michael Jones are relocating to Nairobi

Michael´s new assignment is effective as of 15 August 2014. He remained at the Secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions (BRS) in Geneva as part of the hand-over of his former duties to Charlie Avis.

As part of the transition, BRS has migrated SafePla.net website of Friends of Safe Planet to the Secretariat’s servers in Geneva.  SafePla.net currently serves as respository of the Campaign´s activities from its inception through Rio +20 Conference in June 2012.

“Safe Planet Campaign continues through the strong commitment and support of its members, and remains an integral part of the communication and outreach effort of the BRS Secretariat.  I am leaving behind a strong and talented team at BRS and many wondrous memories of the work we have accomplished together.  I wish to thank everyone at the Secretariat and within the UN Safe Planet community for all their kindness, enthusiasm and support during these past 4 ½ years,” Michael added.
