Dear colleagues, members of the ICH NGO Forum:
three weeks from now is the Consultation meeting on the advisory functions of accredited NGOs under the 2003 Convention, which is of great importance to all of us. Up to now, 50 NGOs along with 24 States Parties confirmed their participation.
We hope that you had a chance to study the working documents that are available at https://ich.unesco.org/en/reflection-on-the-role-of-ngos-01037.
As we invited you in our previous letter, please feel free to send us all questions, issues, comments and suggestions that you may have concerning the documents, and/or that you may wish to be raised during the debates at the Consultation meeting. Based on your feedback, we, the ICH NGO Forum Steering Committee, shall do our best for all important issues and aspects to be debated with due attention at the meeting. This pertains in particular to NGOs which, unfortunately, will not be able to attend the meeting themselves.
We are on your disposal regarding any other issue related to the Consultation meeting.
With best wishes,
Steering Committee of the ICH NGO Forum
