Since its inception in 1962, the GNEC, and NGO DPI previously, have a proud history of partnering with UNDGC, and DPI previously, at their request. GNEC has participated in and in some cases led aspects within the Planning Committees for each major UN Civil Society Conference since their inception – the work of this body has primarily been to prepare all aspects of the workshops and exhibits while also being major content and volunteer service contributors to most other aspects of each event.
During the past few years, virtual conferences and briefings have become the lifeline for global civil society and the UNDGC affiliated NGOs. During the year, numerous workshops are organised by GNEC – or produced as platform hosts by GNEC for others – to address issues we hope are important to UNDGC affiliated NGOs. Some of the jointly organised GNEC- UNDGC events held yearly are the Communication Workshops, Town Hall Meetings, Webinars, Meet and Greet events, GNEC Hackathon and many more designed to help NGOs find increased success in the field.
We jointly organised events with various UNDGC affiliated NGOs such as: World Assembly of Youth, International Federation of Ageing, African Youth Movement, NGO Committee on Sustainable Development- NY, Light Up foundation, NGO Committee on Ageing- NY, League of Women Voters in the United States, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, just to mention a few.
These collaborations give the NGOs opportunities to share information and best practices and to develop partnerships to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. We are open to collaborate and partner with all UNDGC affiliated NGOs.
The Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC) was founded in 1962 to promote a closer working relationship between the United Nations and the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) associated with it. GNEC acts as a liaison between the NGO community and the UN's Department of Global Communications (UNDGC). GNEC provides strategic guidance to help NGOs become more effective partners of the UN.
