"The Voices of Civil Society must not be silenced during the Pandemic."
Civil society participation in the meetings of the United Nations should not be a victim of #COVID19
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had enormous consequences for civil society. We are currently running the risk of the pandemic 'silencing' civil society actors in the virtual HLPF (High-Level Political Forum) at the UN. The active participation of civil society organizations is crucial to ensure that the efforts of the United Nations respond to the needs of all people.
For this reason, 460 CSOs from around the world have signed the letter requesting the UN member states to guarantee the participation of civil society.
