What is ECOSOC?

Established in 1945 by the UN Charter, as one of the six main organs of the United Nations, The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) is at the heart of the United Nations system to advance the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental. It is the central platform for fostering debate and innovative thinking, forging consensus on ways forward, and coordinating efforts to achieve internationally agreed goals.
It is also responsible for the follow-up to major UN conferences and summits.

Building on its coordination role within the UN system, ECOSOC is a gateway for UN partnership and participation by the rest of the world.
It offers a unique global meeting point for productive dialogues among policymakers, parliamentarians, academics, foundations, businesses, youth and 3,200+ registered non-governmental organizations.
