Civil society participation

Over the past few months, member states and their delegations have been taking part in a series of informal (closed) “topical meetings” online to further discuss each of the WHO recommendations in turn – ahead of the planned vote on these recommendations in December 2020. To compensate for these discussions being closed, they are accompanied by a formal, open “intersessional” meeting on 8th October – which will be a mix of in-person participation in Vienna, and online participation via Microsoft Teams and a web-cast.

VNGOC has been invited to select five NGO representatives to make formal interventions at this meeting (either in person, or remotely) – to provide inputs, evidence and arguments related to the WHO recommendations on cannabis and related substances. We will do so using the usual open call for speakers – please see below for details. Participant numbers will be limited in the UN building in Vienna due to COVID-19, so please contact us for more information if you are interested in attending this meeting in person.
