Before the UN Commission on Social Development, our NGO Committee on Social Development holds a Forum for civil society; it was very sucessful this year. The planning committee had made great efforts to engage participants from all over the world, and the energy level was high! This year the Forum was extended to two days, and several new features (e.g. an orientation, regional breakout sessions, and a reception) were added. UNANIMA staff helped with registration, served as recorders, moderated briefings, and served on a variety of committees that planned and executed the day. The spirit of the day has been captured in a YouTube video which can be accessed through this link: https://youtu.be/ah_5VBwUzIU .
