Accredited NGOs in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) may organize information meetings of relevance to the work of the Human Rights Council.
NGO parallel events are public meetings and may be attended by NGOs, Permanent Mission Representatives, UN Staff and other persons with access to Palais des Nations.
NGO parallel events can not take place during the High-Level Segment.
Requests are processed in priority, subject to availability of rooms.
All conference rooms are equipped with a screen, projector, Internet access, and access to interpretation booths.
Interpretation for NGOs' parallel events is not provided by the United Nations. NGOs may bring their own interpreters, if they so wish, and in order to do so, inform the Secretariat ahead of time.
