15 Sept: An Overview of NGO Participation in the ECOSOC High-Level Segment, July 2011
The Economic and Social Council encourages participation from NGOs to submit statements during its meetings. The 2011 High Level Segment of the Council, held from 4 to 7 July in Geneva, included a session on the theme of “Implementing the internationally agreed goals and commitments in regard to education.” In order to solicit statements from NGOs on this theme, 55 NGOs were recommended to speak, representing an increase of 25% from last year’s session. Additionally, 136 NGOs submitted written statements that were distributed among all participants of the Council as part of the official ECOSOC documentation, an increase of over 50% compared to 2010. A page with a full listing of all written and oral statements has been made available at the link below.
