As CSW comes to a close this evening, we know that the need for feminist civil society voices continues beyond these past two weeks. 

The deadline for registration for the United Nations Civil Society Conference is 5th April 2024, by 5 pm Eastern Time. For the first time, the conference will be held on the continent of Africa. 

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.

Due to limited space at the United Nations Office at Nairobi, the registration may close earlier, so we recommend signing up as soon as possible if you are interested. Representatives from NGOs formally associated with the Department of Global Communications (DGC), NGOs in consultative status with ECOSOC, and NGOs, Private Sector and Academia not accredited to the UN System with supporting documentation of their legal status of the organization are able to participate in the Conference. Each Organization will be able to register up to three representatives. Each nominated representative must register individually in Indico. If more than three representatives are registered under one organization, the Secretariat may approve registrations on a first-come first-served basis. Please read the FAQs regarding the registration process before proceeding with your registration.

The Commission will also review the progress made in the implementation of and follow-up to the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society at the regional and international levels; and hear presentations on ongoing science, technology and innovation policy reviews.
