CSW 61 NGO Advisory 3: NGO ACCESS – English, French & Spanish
Date: March 14, 2017
GO Advisory 3: NGO ACCESS AT CSW61
Dear Organizations with Pre-Registered Representatives for CSW61,
Access to conference rooms will again be limited during CSW61, due to the very high number of NGO representatives who have pre-registered, placing a high demand on the finite space in United Nations Headquarters. There will be approximately 200 seats in the plenary room for the 4000-6000 NGOs that are expected. That is why all official meetings will be webcast. You are encouraged to follow these broadcasts live or on demand via United Nations Web TV at http://webtv.un.org/
You can also follow @UN_CSW on Twitter to find out about side events, overflow room, venue changes, and when registration lines are shortest. Join the conversation using #CSW61 to share information about your own events.
- The United Nations grounds pass will be sufficient to gain access to the General Assembly Building and the Conference Building, where official CSW meetings and side events will take place. The programme of official meetings is available at http://www.unwomen.org/en/csw/csw61-2017/official-meetings ; for the schedule of side events, please visit http://www.unwomen.org/en/csw/csw61-2017/side-events
- The only open official meetings that will require tickets are the opening and the ministerial round tables on the first day of the session, both of which meetings are webcast. There are very few tickets available. Organizations may pick up one ticket for the opening and one ticket for one of the round tables only, while supplies last. Tickets will be given out at the CSW information desk in the visitor’s lobby in UNHQ (“GA lobby”) during registration hours starting on Friday 10 March, throughout the weekend and on Monday 13 March morning, while supplies last. For registration hours, please see the CSW website at http://www.unwomen.org/en/csw/ngo-participation/registration
The organization’s representative picking up the ticket for the organization needs to be registered for CSW, in possession of a valid UN grounds pass, and needs to bring a print-out of the CSW confirmation letter.
The confirmation letters are available from the organization’s account in/on CSO-net:
- Most of the official meetings will take place in Conference Room 4 (plenary room). During the opening of the session in the GA hall in the morning of the first day, Conference Room 4 will serve as overflow room.
- NGO morning briefings will be held from 8:30 – 9:15 a.m., Tuesday 14 March – Thursday 23 March in Conference Room 4. For more information on NGO morning briefings, please visit the website of the NGO Committee on the Status of Women (NGO CSW, NY) at http://www.ngocsw.org/
