How to get involved
The Division of Sustainable Development, through the Stakeholders Engagement Programme, collaborates closely with MGoS through a coordinating body of facilitators known as the Organizing Partners, comprised of accredited organizations that are invited to be facilitators between the Major Group constituencies and DSD.
