NGO CSW Forum at the 68th Convention on the Status of Women

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡³ Applications to host Parallel Events at the UN's 68th Convention on the Status of Women are open! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡³

One of the key components of the NGO CSW Forum is the Parallel Events. Each year, the NGO CSW Forum invites civil society organizations (CSOs) around the globe to apply to host a Parallel Event, regardless of their ECOSOC status. These events are organized by the host NGO or CSO and address the CSW priority and/or review theme in some way.

Parallel Events not only provide a space and voice for NGOs and CSOs who may not have a voice at/access to the UN, but they also allow for education and galvanizing around different issues and topics within the feminist and women’s movement. Parallel Events are totally free to attend and open to the public.

πŸ’™ Learn more and apply to host a Parallel Event here.
