the international day for civil society organizations (CSO)


The World NGO Day Initiative is managed by Marcis Liors Skadmanis and Tom Kin. It has many supporters world-wide.

An International Day for CSOs would recognize the important role played by civil society in the achievement of the sustainable development goals and offer an opportunity to celebrate successes.


From 2014-2018, Jan Mattsson was a Goodwill Ambassador and Strategic Advisor to this initiative.
