The 66th United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI)/Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Conference will be held in the City of Gyeongju, Republic of Korea from 30 May to 1 June 2016. It will be the first time for the DPI/NGO Conference to be held in Asia and the fifth time that the DPI/NGO Conference is taking place outside United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Conference will focus on creating and strengthening global partnerships in support of the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by United Nations (UN) Member States in September 2015.
Scott Carlin, Associate Professor of Geography at Long Island University and Yukang Choi, CEO of Korean NGO Dream Touch for All said "The potential for academia and civil society to work together is enormous; through new collaborations, innovative pedagogies and a culture of global citizenship we can build healthier, more resilient Earth communities." And Soon-heung Chang, President of Handong Global University, said "Korea is a shining example of how a focus on education can drive rapid and successful development. Korean NGOs will offer a strong platform in Gyeongju for NGOs from around the world to exchange best practices and cooperate in support of Agenda 2030.”
"The support of civil society as a whole and NGOs and academia in particular will be key to our ability to achieve the sustainable development goals," said Maher Nasser, Director of the Outreach Division of the United Nations Department of Public Information. He continued, "We are very proud of our partnership with NGOs and universities and believe that the Gyeongju Conference offers a great opportunity to mobilize civil society’s creative talent and energy to support Agenda 2030 and beyond."
