28. Jun Granted Association with United Nations Department of Global Communications
28. Jun became the first humanitarian organization operating in the Western Balkans to be approved for Association with the United Nations Department of Global Communications this week. The association constitutes a commitment on the part of 28. Jun to disseminate information and raise public awareness about the purposes and activities of the United Nations and issues of global concern. Associated organizations are expected to focus a portion of their publications and information activities on the work of the United Nations and are encouraged to cooperate with the United Nations in their areas of work and expertise.
28. Jun will also receive an additional six grounds passes each year to enter the United Nations Headquarters in New York. Because 28. Jun is already in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations, it will bring the total amount of annual passes at the disposal of the organization to 27. The NGO plans to utilize the additional influence to intensify efforts by its advocacy wing — 28. Jun Global. Because 28. Jun operates in areas where populations face routine violations of fundamental human needs — advocacy strategies to alert, inform, and influence decision-makers via international bodies like the UN, are necessary.
