Important UNGA Dates 2019

 Registration

Please, note that during the UN high level week, all summits, meetings and events demand specific registration due to security and space restrictions. Your Grounds Pass (ECOSOC accredited Organization) alone will not be sufficient to enter the UN Building. You will also need a Special Event Ticket to enter. Each of the summits, meetings and events above have their own registration processes to obtain Special Event Tickets. Obtaining a Special Event Ticket to one event will not grant you access to another. Each of the summits, meetings and events above are being organized by different people, please use the links to the websites to find out further information.

 SDG Summit Registration

Registration for the SDG Summit has not yet opened. I will provide an update when it does.

 SDG Summit Advocacy Opportunities

As stated in the modalities of the SDG Summit, a high-level ‘Representative from the Major Groups and other Stakeholders’ (MGoS) will be selected to speak during each of the six Leaders’ Dialogues, meaning that there are six different MGoS representatives in total. The nominees will be put forward by the Steering Group of the Coordination Mechanism of the MGoS. Please contact your Major Group or Stakeholder Group to find out more about the selection process.

SDG Summit Side Events & Exhibitions

There will not be an application process for ECOSOC accredited Organisations to hold side events or submit exhibitions in the UN building during the week. There may be further advocacy opportunities for the Major Groups and other Stakeholders, I will provide an update when available.
