Virtual Townhall Meeting of Civil Society and United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres

Dear ECOSOC accredited organizations with representatives approved for CSW65,

We welcome you to join the United Nations Secretary-General’s annual Virtual Townhall Meeting with civil society on the occasion of the sixty-fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women. Moderated by UN Women Executive Director, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the meeting will provide an opportunity for women’s and youth civil society organizations to engage with the Secretary-General on the session’s priority theme: women’s full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.

The virtual townhall will also build upon discussions from the Secretary-General’s virtual meeting with women’s civil society in light of the COVID-19 crisis, addressing ways to build back better and continue protecting and promoting women’s rights and agency within this new context.

The event will take place on Webex and will be webcast on UN Web TV, as well as on social media – Twitter, YouTube, Facebook. The session will take place in English only, however translation into other UN languages will be available on the broadcast.

The townhall is open to CSW65 approved representatives of ECOSOC-accredited NGOs. Due to platform limitations, attendance will be limited to two (2) CSW65 approved representatives per organization to allow for equal participation opportunities for registered organizations.

Please register up to a maximum of two CSW65 approved representatives of your organization for the Webex meeting using the following link: https://forms.gle/XZ7taXz3YndBqgGX9

Please note that registration does not guarantee access to the Webex meeting. Registered participants who receive the meeting-specific link will be admitted to the Webex platform until maximum capacity is reached.

All other representatives of your organization are welcome to view the live webcast at http://webtv.un.org/ and via social media – Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube (links to be shared).

Kind regards,
UN Women
