Rondine acquires special consultative status with the UN

The important international recognition for Rondine Cittadella della Pace comes from the United Nations.

Three years after the first presentation of the “Leaders for Peace” global campaign at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, Rondine has extraordinarily obtained the special status of Observer by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the UN official body is responsible for accrediting civil society entities that are particularly distinguished by the ability to promote UN values at local, national, and international level.

The advisory status will legitimize Rondine as an actor of “international utility” and will involve its registration in the UN Registry Office. As a result, Rondine will have access to the documentation and meetings of the ECOSOC and its numerous subsidiary organs and programs.

Moreover, Rondine will be involved in all participatory democracy processes through its new advisory role within UN decision-making processes.

“The achievement of the special status at the UN rewards the solidity and trust of international relations that our Association has built in its over twenty years of activity, and opens the door to a proactive role of Rondine for bringing its own experience and good practices at the service of the international community” Franco Vaccari, founder and president of the Association Rondine Cittadella della Pace, declared.

This important international recognition marks a decisive step for Rondine.
