DPI NGO Tuesday Chat Series

The Tuesday Chat Series provides a platform for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the NGO Relations Unit of the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) to engage in an informal discussion on thematic issues. It is an occasion for UN DPI NGO Relations, NGOs and their respective partners to boost advocacy on key United Nations priority issues, share resources and best practices. 

Organized monthly at the DPI NGO Resource Centre, the Tuesday Chat Series is open to representatives of NGOs who are formally associated with DPI who wish to join the conversation about ideas, initiatives, and best practices to help civil society organizations advance positive change and promote the United Nations agenda.
