NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee’s Newsletter (Issue number 1)

 

This newsletter was born of a common will to give more visibility to NGOs’ collective work as official partners of UNESCO, and whose key role has been underlined by our Director General, Mrs Irina Bokova in her message of congratulations addressed to the president and the members of the new Liaison Committee.

The Liaison Committee’s new strategy of communication answers NGOs’ expectations (see ICNGO conclusions) about the latest news of the Liaison Committee and UNESCO, with a space devoted to NGOs for sharing their best practices and events at UNESCO or elsewhere (Word documents, English and French versions to be provided) and for the follow-ups of the fora. We also kindly remind you that a form for NGOs’ posting of events is available (on request) on UNESCO website.

You will find the February Monthly Letter by Assistant Director General, Mr Eric Falt as well as the minutes of the 23rd February’s meeting with all necessary information on the first forum of the new Liaison Committee (7th international forum of NGOs in partnership with UNESCO, 3-4 May, Ryadh) and on the next planned events like the International Day of Peace. You will also find the report on CCNGO meeting.

As we wish to strengthen our cooperation with UNESCO, we would like to create a pool of competences within NGOs’ members and ask you to help us in our mission and register as volunteers in translations, compilations of NGOs’ oral 3mns’statements during the fora or conferences as observers to be posted, reports on conferences and events at UNESCO headquarters or elsewhere and relevant to UNESCO’s priorities.

We are very much looking forward to your suggestions and feedback to improve our communication on NGOs’ collective work.

THANK YOU!
