2024 UN Civil Society Conference 

9 - 10 May 2024 in Nairobi, Kenya

The United Nations Civil Society Conference is the premier event on the civil society calendar at the United Nations. The Conference offers civil society organizations an opportunity to put a global perspective on a specific issue and brings together senior UN System officials, prominent international civil society organizations, youth changemakers, academia, public opinion makers, and international media to discuss issues of global concern. This international forum, expected to host some 1500 participants, will provide preliminary discussions and data ahead of the Summit of the Future in September 2024 at the UN Headquarters in New York. Since 1947, sixty-eight civil society conferences have resulted in successful outcomes due to previous interactions with civil society organizations. 

Participation in the United Nations Civil Society Conference is open to representatives of civil society organizations associated with the Department of Global Communications and/or in consultative status with ECOSOC. Civil society organizations not included in these groups are also welcome to register for the conference. However, they require an endorsement from a United Nations entity that is familiar with their work and can provide feedback on their eligibility.
