Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum

The Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum is a unique opportunity for civil society organizations to engage on the agenda of the 2017 United Nations Environment Assembly!

 

The Global Major Groups and Stakeholders Forum will take place on 27 and 28 November 2017, during the week prior to the 2017 UN Environment Assembly.

 

Self-organized by Major Groups and Stakeholders accredited to UN Environment, this multi-stakeholder Forum is open to the participation of accredited and non-accredited civil society organizations, the private sector and Member States.

 

The Forum will allow Major Groups and Stakeholders the opportunity to coordinate their input into both the Open-ended Meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives (29 November – 1 December 2017) and the Assembly itself. Stakeholders will also be able to participate in the Science Policy Forum and other events that take place over the weekend prior to the Assembly.

 

For more information on the Forum, please contact civil.society@unep.org and visit the website of our Civil Society Unit.
