Did you know that Servas plays a role at the United Nations?
As an organization promoting peace, Servas International has “consultative status” with the UN. This means that Servas can name 15 official representatives to the UN and can participate in and contribute to various UN conferences and discussions. In return, Servas members are requested to learn about and support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2015-2030 and other UN initiatives.
One of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals is gender equality. For the past few years, Servas members have been delegates to the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) conference held at the UN in New York every March. This year, over 40 Servas members from around the world registered as delegates for CSW67. Some of them attended a portion of the two-week conference in-person, while others participated online.
