Civil Society Declaration 2023


Guided by the principles of the Copenhagen Declaration, we are continuing a

vision of a world of true prosperity without poverty, inclusion, and justice for all.


As members of civil society, we will work towards the World Social Summit (2025);

we seek to engage NGOs through the work of the Commission for Social

Development, highlighting best practices, and bringing a diversity of

voices to the United Nations.


Inclusion, consultative, value-driven, respect, participation, collaboration, partnership
