General registration to attend the Summit is not yet open. In the interim, the United Nations offers the opportunity for organizations that are not already accredited to the UN through one of the three categories below to apply for Special Accreditation to the Post-2015 Summit. PLEASE NOTE: Confirmation of special accreditation does not mean that you will be able to attend the Summit. More information on the opportunity to attend the Summit will be available soon.
If your Organization falls under any of the following three categories, then you do not need to apply for special accreditation:
• Organizations with consultative status with the Economic and Social Council;
• Organizations on the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) Roster; and
• Organizations accredited to the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD).
