The 2018 International Conference of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) will be held from 17 to 19 December 2018 at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
The 2018 edition of the Conference will focus on the theme “Enhancing and promoting the commitment and contribution of UNESCO’s NGO partners” and will be organized around two subthemes: “Acting together: The collective strength of NGOs” and “Communication, information, dialogue”.
The Conference is a key forum in which UNESCO’s official NGO partners meet to review the state of cooperation with UNESCO. This year’s Conference will provide a welcome opportunity to examine collective NGO action carried out in 2017 and 2018, and consider the main lines of collective cooperation for 2019-2020. Moreover, participants will be called upon to elect a new Chairperson for the Conference, as well as a new NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee.
The International Conference of NGOs gathers every two years NGOs in official partnership with the Organization. However, representatives of Member States, foundations in official relations with UNESCO, other NGOs and/or other interested organizations may attend the Conference as observers.
Any additional information and working documents will become available soon on this site and the one of the NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee (www.ong-unesco.org).
