66th UN DPI/NGO Conference

On May 30, 2016 in Gyeongju, Republic of Korea, Secretary General Ban Ki Moon issued an inspiring speech about the positive impact NGO’s have had. The Secretary General also advocated for increased space for NGO’s, as he said “I am such a strong believer in NGOs, I constantly call on governments to expand space, some political, economic, social space for NGOs to work freely, without any hindrance.” The expansion of space for NGO’s allows them to effectively create change as, according to the Secretary General, NGO stands for Networks of Global Opportunities.

Ban Ki Moon’s full speech can be read from the attachment below.
