UArctic is one of the NGO partners present in the UNESCO NGO Liaison Committee International Conference on Non-Governmental Organizations at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris on 17-19 December, 2018. Both President Lars Kullerud and Vice-President Organization Outi Snellman are formal delegates representing UArctic in the meeting. UArctic is also one of the 35 organizations participating in the information sharing session with a booth on Monday 17 December.

The Conference is a key forum in which UNESCO’s official NGO partners meet to review the state of cooperation with UNESCO. This year’s Conference will provide a welcome opportunity to examine collective NGO action carried out in 2017 and 2018, and consider the main lines of collective cooperation for 2019-2020.
