September 2002. All side events will take place inside the Sandton Convention
Centre. All delegates accredited to the Summit are welcome to attend these side
events at no charge, subject to room restrictions.
Click here to read the special "ENB On the Side"
report on selected side events that was produced by the International Institute
for Sustainable Development
Side events have been an important part of the meetings of the Commission on
Sustainable Development (CSD) and are expected to be similarly important in the
World Summit on Sustainable Development (the Johannesburg Summit) and the
meetings of its Preparatory Committee (PrepCom).
Side events are events that take place in the margins of the official
inter-governmental meetings, organized for the purpose of sharing experiences
and increasing opportunities for dialogue among the official meetings'
Unlike regular meetings of the CSD or similar inter-governmental processes, a
Summit and its PrepComs involve more complex processes and many more
participants. These factors have both increased the demand and reduced the
availability of space and time slots for such events.
Please note that the deadline for applications for those wishing to organise
Summit Side Events was 20 June 2002. No new applications will be accepted.
