FAQ: Access to the UN during CSW 56
1. I want to
attend a UN side event. I have a grounds pass and have registered for UN
CSW 56. How can I get a special event tag?
Please consult the UN Women website for a list of UN side
events. Send your name to the official contact and request to be
put on a list of persons to receive a special event tag. You must pick
these tags up just before the UN event. Please note these do not give you
access to any other event at the UN.
2. How can I get
an event tag to attend the UN CSW 56 Opening Ceremony, at the UN?
Please refer to the UN Women website for details. NGO
representatives holding a grounds pass and secondary “area pass” will
have access to the UN North Lawn Building overflow room.
3. I have a UN
grounds pass. Do I need an “event tag” to attend an NGO CSW Forum Event
taking place at the UN North Lawn Building (UN NLB)?
These are distributed on a first come, first served basis at the NGO CSW
Forum desk in the lobby of the main UN building. The special event tags
are available 15 minutes prior to the event, not before.
4. Will this event
tag give me access to additional CSW meetings in the main conference
The event tag entitles you to enter the building for your specific event only. They
must be returned to NGO CSW Forum staff at the conclusion of your event.
5. I am an event
organizer and my event is assigned to the UN NLB conference room B. Some
of our speakers or participants do NOT have UN grounds passes. How can
they gain access to the event?
Event organizers must send a list of participants’ full names and event
details (title, date and time) to firstname.lastname@example.org two weeks prior to the event.
