We’re a team of MIT students and faculty who are attending the UN INC5 negotiations for a global treaty on mercury, which are taking place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 13-18 January, 2013. Our goal is to help inform negotiators, scientists, and the general public with the latest scientific findings on mercury of relevance to the treaty process.

Our trip is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation as part of a research grant to Prof. Noelle Selin. More info here.

Follow us on our blog and twitter (@MITMercury) as we discuss issues related to mercury science and international policy making, and provide real-time reporting on the negotiations.
