Registration for the 2024 UN Civil Society Conference

“Shaping a Future of Global and Sustainable Progress”

Date: 9 - 10 May, 2024 

Venue: The United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON), Kenya (In-Person Only)

“Civil society organizations were present in San Francisco at the founding of the United Nations and have been an integral part of the United Nations ecosystem from the outset. As part of our consultations, civil society has called for better engagement with the United Nations system. I believe that it is essential for the United Nations to listen to, coordinate with, and engage with civil society.”

-from the UN Secretary-General's report, "Our Common Agenda" Chapter V. Paragraph 121

The Department of Global Communications undertakes this conference in close coordination with the civil society community represented through the Coalition for the UN We Need (C4UN), the Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC), the Conference of Non-Governmental Organizations in Consultative Relationship with the United Nations (CoNGO), and the Major Groups and Other Stakeholders (MGoS) Coordination Mechanism.

The United Nations Civil Society Conference will provide an opportunity for multi-stakeholder engagement ahead of the Summit of the Future and a venue for civil society to participate in the preparations process. The conference will provide civil society with an additional platform to speak out and share ideas that could contribute to the Pact for the Future negotiations, in line with SDG17 and the Common Agenda's vision of networked multilateralism.

The registration deadline has been extended to 5 April 2024, by 12 p.m. Eastern Time. Due to limited space at the UNON, Nairobi, Kenya, registration may close earlier.
