creating an 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.


In 2014, Jan Mattsson agreed to become a Goodwill Ambassador and Strategic Advisor of this initiative to help out with obtaining General Assembly approval. This remains work in progress
